Notice that this guy has them in his garage, because I bet they will not fit through any other door in his house! Ahh, to dream of the display you could make!

I had a friend, long departed, who bought nice, wooden card index file cabinets from libraries. He stored his stamp collection on 104 cards that were placed in the drawers. He had at least two dozen of these files stuffed full of identified stamps. I'd say that he had more stamps than many dealers! At the time of his passing, he was putting together a worldwide collection in Scott International albums.

re: For The Stamp Collector Who Has Everything!

There are many huge and beautiful antiques like this out there for pennies on the dollar, just as you said because they are too enormous for people to collect. Back when I used to build office space I would add a piece as a focal point in a common area or end of a hallway. Once I bought a 12 foot long by nine feet tall solid oak wall of cabinetry that was from an 1880s church sacristy. I paid $5000 for it and more than that to move and install it. It became the focal point in the main gathering space of a conference center.
