Wot a lot I got



I’ve recently rediscovered the joy of stamps, after ignoring them for a long time. So, I’m very busy sorting and mounting large numbers of stamps I’d forgotten I had. As a result, I needed a new album and bought one on eBay. Whenever you buy from a stamp dealer, the postage is made up of stamps which are old but still valid, as long as they are decimal and the values added up properly. I’ve got a lot of old mint stamps myself but seldom use them because so many stamps would be needed to make up the current rate. You can see above that my seller managed to get twenty-five stamps on his parcel (and to have them beautifully cancelled). I’m preserving this, as the highest number of stamps I’ve ever seen on piece. I don't think it's a record, though.
