Maiden, maybe you should count the stamps the modern scientific way by weighing 1000 average stamps then weigh what's left and do the maths.

Otherwise your next 50 posts will be up for your next celebration giveaway.

Well, I guess my ETA of 3hours, 27 minutes, 18 seconds for a total was a little off the mark.

Maiden, Ahh now the fog is clearer, your 'guess' was 22,500 and with the count at almost 20,000......... you may be a winner of your own give aways.

Sorry

Looking at whats left to count/sort, I reckon somewhere around the 24-25k mark is looking favourite :)

C'Warrier, I don't think anyone would mind if you placed your guess at this late stage - no harm guessing knowing you won't get a brass razoo (prize).

Hmmm - I based my guess on all stamps being large. I should have taken into consideration that small stamps would have doubled my estimate!

We've cleared the 25k mark, but there are more to go than I thought...30k is looking good about now. Dont think I'll have it done before Christmas tho.

Maiden, We've been re-looking at that half full box of stamps you showed in this thread, we are HONESTLY stunned that this half full box contained over 10,000 stamps let alone 30K.

Any sign of the completion date.
