i have purchased 50 dollar stamps and put them in their tomb (stamp album) but to be honest i get more of a thrill going through a mixture of stamps looking for a numeral cancel or a good town cancel. Strange eh ?Image Not Found

I'm with ya! My recent purchase of two huge boxes of old postcards illustrates that. I have found hours... no weeks of enjoyment searching through it all!

I was always the kid who put the toy aside and played with the box!

We were looking forward the annual postcard show in Kingston N.Y. They cancelled last year due to covid but now i heard at our club that the Big Dealers( 3 or 4 tables) did not sign up so its cancelled again. Well Jopie and i have Sept 20/21 penciled in for Bellefonte. I emailed the APS to see if thats not a problem. We are vaccinated and don't mind masks.
