I am just working on USA stamps right now, I have a mess of 3 different collections that were given to me along with the stuff I bought on eBay and at shows. However I have recently bought what I call ugly guys on stamps. someday I would like make a small book. it keeps things interesting.

"Ugly guys on stamps" would make a very big book. It took me some time to realise that the series I called "Faces only a mother could love" was actually known as "Famous Americans"!

Geoff, I was always amazed that Thomas Edison was not one of the original "Famous Americans". Still am.

Neeskens - pristine because, I suspect, there was a servant at hand to provide hipster-style beard-grooming at all times. After all, when the Queen Mother died, it was said that she'd probably never squeezed a tube of toothpaste in her life.

Jack - that is an odd one. I suppose Henry James was another omission, although perhaps the post office decided that he counted as English.

I branched out from only US to try Germany. It was a good move. I had some stamps from my grandfather's collection. and I can read and speak the language. I'm not fluent, but I got around pretty well on several trips over there.

Switching from simply collecting stamps, to collecting and creating maxicards (maximum cards).
Then I discovered that I can design personalized stamps, personalized postcards and therefore personalized maxicards.
Then, I discovered that I can be my own postmaster and apply postmarks with my MPP device (with Mailer's Postmark Permit, from USPS).

I am going through an evolution now. The stamps I need to complete my US collection are getting expensive so now focusing time and money on foreign. I can get some very attractive engraved stamps for the price of a boring Washington Franklin. I do want to complete a couple series but my early US interest in waning.
