SWITZERLAND

The first postage stamps used in Switzerland were issued by the cantons of Zürich, Geneva and Basel. The 1848 federal constitution paved the way for stamps to be issued confederation-wide and the first of these came out in 1850. All the 19th century issues of Switzerland are some of the best investments in European philately. Also from a purely collecting standpoint they offer a wide scope for those who wish to specialize. Modern stamps and the Pro Patria and Pro Juventute series are collected worldwide.
