Sam Malamud. The Inverted Jenny block sold at auction in October 2005 for US $2.7 million

Part of the treasure recovered from the sunken spanish ship 'El Cazador'

To get children interested in stamp collecting, Sam Malamud donated $20,000 for the first contest of a youth essay program sponsored by the American Philatelic Society and supported by the U.S. Postal Service.

According to Linn's Stamp News editor and publisher Michael Laurence, Sam Malamud is one of the most innovative pioneers in modern stamp collecting. "Sam has done probably more than anybody else to reach out to new constituencies of stamp collectors," he said.

The New York Times noted that Sam Malamud is the single person to be credited with a resurgence of stamp collecting in recent years.

Ideal Stamp and Coin was founded by Sam Malamud. A stamp collector since the very young age of four, Sam opened his first stamp store when he was just 12. More than half a century later, Ideal Stamp and Coin is one of the world's top collectibles businesses and is a pioneer in new ways of bringing the joys of stamp and coin collecting to millions of people around the world.

Sam Malamud is highly respected by his fellow philatelists, having served on the board of directors of many professional societies.

Today, Ideal Stamp and Coin is one of the world's largest buyers, sellers, and appraisers of stamps, coins, jewelry, and precious metals. In addition, Ideal retains one of the largest stocks of stamps from:

  • United States
  • Israel
  • Vatican
  • Canada
  • Russia
  • And many other nations

Many of the world's rarest and most fascinating stamps, from the "Inverted Jenny" (also known as the Upside Down Airplane or the rarest U.S. Error) to rare 19th century classics, have passed through Sam's hands at Ideal. Ideal was also one of the original partners in marketing the legendary treasure from the wreck of El Cazador.

To assure you the best prices for your collection, Ideal works with the most prestigious auction houses and has access to hundreds of top dealers and powerful collectors around the world.

One of Ideal's sister businesses - which was also founded by Sam Malamud - is New York-based Inter-Governmental Philatelic Corporation. IGPC represents some 70 client nations and has designed and helped produce commemorative stamps for about 100 official government postal administrations around the world and is responsible for up to 50 percent of the world's stamps in any given year. IGPC is also responsible for minting the coins of many nations.
