ISWSC Swap Circuit Program for 2018-19

The 2018-19 program is being simplified to the following circuits. We will charge $4 for the Large Size (100 Foreign Stamps), Cancelled to Order (100 CTO Stamps), Small Size (150 Foreign Stamps - 4 times per year), and USA (100 USA Stamps), We will charge $9 for the Large Size (200 Foreign Stamps) and Small Size (150 Foreign Stamps - 9 times per year). The income received will be used by the Swap Circuit Mangers to buy quality stamp inventory. We always welcome comments from current Swap Circuit participants as to how this program can be improved, and we would like to hear from non-participating ISWSC members what we can do to gain their participation.

If you are interested in managing a circuit consisting of Souvenir Sheets, First Day Covers, Postcards or other philatelic items, please contact the program coordinator.

Lastly, the ISWSC Swap Circuit Program is one of the ISWSCs most popular programs. By purchasing quality stamp inventory, you will be surprised, and pleased, by the stamps you receive in the Circuits. Won't you participate? I welcome the opportunity to answer any, and all, questions.

General Information

A frequently asked question is what is the difference between USA Membership and International Membership. The answer is that if you sign up for only USA Membership all of the participants on your mailing will be in the USA. If you sign up for only International Membership a large number of the participants will be in Canada and foreign countries. A combination of both will result in a guaranteed combination of USA and International participants. This has all come about because some participants were troubled by the 49 cent USA postage rate vs. $1.15 International postage rate.

Online Swap

Are you are interested in exchanging stamps 1 for 1 with your only other cost is paying for postage both directions? The exchange is only for large used worldwide stamps (no USA, no CTO's, no smalls, no damaged).
