Really enjoying playing with my inherited Junior book. I've been reading past posts on the subject.

Did I read somewhere that there are pages that can never be finished? Did it have to do with Dead Countries....or something about newer books with different pages of information...?

Much appreciated, Jennifer

Usually an album page that cannot be finished is one having a space for a rare stamp issue, the cost of which is beyond the resources of the collector (or nearly all collectors).

I'm collecting France using a 1948 Yvert album and agree that vintage albums can be entertaining. Their use of non acid-free paper can be a problem.

Jennifer, one of the virtues of the Scott "Blue" International 1840-1940 is that it can be completed. I know of at least a half-a-dozen collectors who have accomplished this. I say go for it!

"....That would be fun!...."

It is fun, no "would be"about it.
Also every time a page of older stamps
from a popular country is completed,
there is a wave of emotional
satisfaction that rolls in. I say older
because most classic stamps appear to
be smaller (= more to a page) and
harder to find whereas many modern nations
spit stamps out like toilet paper. All a
person needs is a fat purse the addresses
of some national stamp retail agencies.
So sit back, enjoy the fun of stamping
and minimise the angst of completion.
Completion, one page at a time, will come in time.
