Now I have hit my 50 posts, I'd like to run a little thank you competition/giveaway.

When I started collecting a few months ago, a friend of mine from Holland sent me a box of Dutch stamps. The box (including the stamps) weighs 1.9kg which is just over 4 pounds US I think. I am going to start sorting this lot over the next few weeks (might take a while)

The competition is...guess how many stamps are in the box :) The closest guess wins one of every duplicate in the box (I am guessing there will be a lot of dupes)

I doubt there will be anything of value, but I think this is a fun way of saying thanks for making me feel welcome here and for giving good advice when I've asked for it :)

So post your guesses here and good luck.

What a lovely gesture, Maiden!
My guess is 13,000.
(I'm hoping 13 will be the lucky number this time!)

Nice!!

Can my guess be "Lots"? I'm sure I'll have the correct answer then!
Or can I say "a boat load"? That would be another sure winner!

Ok, Ok, I'll guess 17,531

Cheers,


Now that you have your 50 - you can start trading!

At a rough guess.... exactly 16,666

I like counting things...the 12,423 jam jars in my garage are in need of a rinse, but I remain sure they will be useful in some forthcoming apocalypse (you can never have too many preserves)
