UHM stands for Unhinged Mint - the stamp is in the condition it was in when first purchased. M stands for Hinged Mint - the stamp has previously been mounted in a collection. U stands for Used - the stamp is postmarked but not heavily.

Since the time that unhinged stamps became popular, considerable numbers of old stamps with intact gum have appeared on the market, raising suspicion that many of these have been regummed.

Stamp Mounts - These are considerably more expensive than hinges.
