nothing too exciting today ... oh wait! At first glance I didn't pay much attention to these old approval pages (or are they from a circuit book?) thrown into a random lot of low-value stamps. But then I took another look, and while the value is still low, I spotted the four Caravel definitives from the 1930's ... I've been collecting these sets over the last few months, so I was happy to see these from Denmark. Very nice looking stamps up close. I wonder if the Ocean Stamp Co. in Brooklyn is still in business?






heh after a bit of research, it turns out that mint copies of these stamps actually have some value ... sadly mine aren't mint

William H Seward in 1867 engineered the purchase of Alaska from Russia. He also survived an assassination attempt on his life the same night President Lincoln was shot. Not many realize, but that night John Wilkes Booth's gang were after several government figures. Seward was one of them.

Stamps are our history!

US Scott No. 370 (post office fresh )

Here's a few of the highlights of a collection that came in yesterday from eBay. Just 1 album pretty full but unfortunately, the stamps that weren't in mounts were taped to the the album and are coming off lightly stained. It's not scotch tape but some type of folded over white tape. Been using lighter fluid to remove the tape with good luck so far but the tape is leaving a stain behind. At least it's not that typical yellowed stain that scotch tape leaves.

So ironic too because in the front of the album are 2 articles taped to the inside cover from the 60s about investing in stamps. Shame they didn't tell the guy how to mount them.

Thanks Kevin. Yeah I love those too - first time I've ever seen them aside from a blank Minkus album page :)

Haven't watermarked anything yet but I think you're right about the 409. There was also a single next to it in the album but on a blank page.

Also finally finished my 1954 set with the mint $5

Cinderellas - London International Stamp Exhibition 1960 - Royal Festival Hall



Not something I usually collect but thanks to Londonbus1 I am now developing a bit of an interest in Exhibition Cinderellas etc

Now all I need to do is find the other items issued for this Exhibition
