Do you allow CTO stamps into your topical collections?

I am curious because I see a LOT of them here in the Topical area. I myself am not a fan of them as a whole, but I'd like to know how other folks feel.

I will, depending on the CTO. Since my topicals are a mix of mint and used stamps and I'm really only concerned with the subject matter, there isn't much of a difference between a postally used specimen and one that's been CTO. It doesn't adversely affect the subject matter, it's not a big deal.

I'm not a fan of CTOs either. I only collect mint stamps for my main topicals (space and Concorde) but of course I've got some CTOs on other small topical collections.

Nells250, when it comes to topicals, I collect mint, used and CTO stamps. It doesn't matter because I just enjoy the subject matter and like to view whatever stamps exist for airplanes, zeppelins, ships, etc.

I tend to keep away from CTO stamps and stick to those that are commercially used only.

Some of the CTOs are not even cancellations because they are 'printed' right on to the stamps.
