That's interesting, Dave. Wise timing, Frank. On the plus side though, as long as there is a postal service and a mint, you can count on your collections being worth at least face value and can always use the stamps when (or if) you write a real letter! Yes, I know when you bought higher priced collectors' items, there would be a loss, but the fun of owning something special has its own worth.
I have a whole binder full of space exploration stamps from all over the world and had great fun collecting them. Some of them are very beautiful. Wow, that was a time when so much of our world was excited about our space program.
