What else could I need?

You don’t need much to get started, but here are a few other tools that many stamp collectors find useful:

Glassine envelopes: Thin, transparent, moisture-proof envelopes that protect stamps from air and grease.

Perforation gauge: A tool that measures the number of perforations along the edges of your stamps.

Magnifying glass: Used to inspect stamps for tiny details and condition.

Stamp catalog: A handy reference book with stamp values and illustrations.

Stamp tongs: A tool used to pick up and move your delicate stamps.
