I'm looking of what give aways would be of interest. Nothing too exotic. Please list what you are interested in. Countries, topicals, FDC, etc. etc. I don't want to keep offering up the same old things .... your suggestions are appreciated.

Pre 1950 W/W Airmails/Airmail Semi-Postals. I have quite a few of the common ones, but there are still lots of Minimum cat value ones I'm missing.
And you never know what can show up in a giveaway lot!

Used USA Recent (2000 onward) commems from multi-design panes.

Will be interesting to see input from other folks.

Morning oldguy,
Maybe like myself, (but I'm old too), the younger new starters into the hobby have by one means or another lots of stamps, but struggle to get the tools etc. needed to go further.
I think when you have been in the hobby for a long time it's very natural & easy to take the basic things for granted & over look there importance to the new younger ones coming into the hobby.
Not everyone has deep pockets or lives in a place where things are readily available over the counter, like remote ares etc. And not all the young use the internet to buy on either because of the set-up system needed & costs. My daughter is an example of that.
I would have been happy to have a second hand perf. gauge at the beginning 3 years plus ago & are only now awaiting the good USA multi-gauge to arrive in my PO Box :)
Things to mount the stamps on or into,hingeless mounts not being used, pages, stock books, old cats., second hand stuff that may not be used but to others would help them out.
The bigger items I would expect most anyone would be more than happy to pay the postage themselves on them.
But things that are sitting around not being used second hand or otherwise may well help many other newbies get a start
Hope the input helps.
Hats off to you & the others with what you give away in stamps, a kind thing to share the gift.
Respectfully.....Jad

Jad -

Some good suggestions. I did give a kid in an overseas country a stockbook because he said they were not easily available in his county.

I try more of that .... and see if anyone is interested.

Thanks for the suggestions.
