The type of tweezer you use is one of personal preference.
The basic types of stamp tweezers are:
Spade tip stamp tweezers – have a flat and blunt end for a firmer grip on a stamp without damaging its surface and its perforations. Available with an angled end as well as straight.
Rounded/Spoon end stamp tweezers – have a rounded end that easily slides under a stamp. Available with an angled end as well as straight.
Pointed end stamp tweezers – have a tapered and sharp point to efficiently pick up individual stamps. These pointed stamp tweezers should be used with extra care because they may puncture a delicate postage stamp.
Why use a pair of stamp tweezers?
Every stamp collecting book will teach you that investing in a good pair of stamp tweezers is practical to avoid damage to your collection through unwanted folds, accidental tears, and fingerprints on your postage stamps.
