United Nations Conference Stamp Listing

This project attempts to list all stamps and postal stationary issued to honor Conferences and Meetings of the United Nations, its Agencies, and its Predecessor Organizations by the Country in which the Conference was held. Predecessor Organizations include the League of Nations, the Universal Postal Union, the International Labor Organization, and the International Telecommunications Union.

This listing which follows is certainly not complete, and your assistance is requested in filling the gaps and keeping the listing up to date as new issues occur. The current listing is by Scott Catalog number, but other Catalog numbers could be added if there was a interest and you assist in providing that information.

Some stamp images are provided and others will be added. If you would like to provide color images of any of these stamps, they would be most welcome
