A Brief History of the Penny Black Stamp Company

About Us

The Penny Black Stamp Company specializes exclusively in Vatican City philatelic material. For over 100 years the Penny Black Stamp Company has been a family run business synonymous with quality in the philatelic world. We specialize in Vatican City, past as well as new issues.

The Penny Black Stamp Company was founded in 1912 by my father, Sam L. Bayer in Europe. During his life in Europe my father created early airmail and zeppelin flight covers. Today these covers are sought by philatelic collectors all over the world!
