IPS Index, Worksheet 2: Philatelic and Numismatic Catalogues

To develop this worksheet, we analyzed seven important philatelic and numismatic references. We identified 508 states that issued stamps, coins, bank notes, etc.

The table below is sorted alphabetically by state, followed by the type of item(s) issued. Click "Key to Abbreviations", and the Key will launch in a pop-up window for easy reference. Where multiple states with the same name were identified, they are differentiated by a number in parentheses.

Sources identified certain states as subordinate to other states. These subordinate states were often labeled by type of political entity (thikana, jagir, etc). We've included this information for reference, though all entities are transferred to the Master Worksheet as "states". In the overall evaluation, it's up to the individual researcher to differentiate between states and other entities.
