Prince Edward Island

When it comes to challenges, stamp collectors come in different sizes. Some are the Everest climbers—they collect US, a monumental climb with some 10,000 main varieties (as listed in the Scott specialized US catalog) and costing anywhere from a fortune on up. And some collectors like the bunny hills, collecting only modern new issues. But for collectors who want a real challenge but want to limit the time they need to put into their hobby to complete a collection, there are few countries better to collect than Prince Edward Island.

Prince Edward Island is one of the main Canadian provinces that confederated to form Canada in the late nineteenth century. Before confederation, it issued only sixteen stamps. Three are scarce. The entire country can be bought for under a thousand dollars. But the fun part is that the stamps, especially in nice condition, a hard to find.
