Hello everyone.....


Anyone who has just begun or has only been collecting a few years is welcome to email me their address and I'll send a packet that will include well over 100 US & Worldwide stamps, a cover and a small booklet that will help you identify worldwide stamps.

Is this a giveaway or a pay it forward? If it is just a giveaway then i'm in.The reason is I only have under 50 stamps.

I've been collecting since january for all intents and purposes. I did cut some stamps off of envelopes when I was younger but that was not really collecting, I cut parts of the stamps even.

Sounds great, you are a very generous person.

Maybe you should change the title to giveaway, not pay it forward.
Just an idea.
LeAnn

Oh yeah, sending e-mail.

I think Pay-it-Forward is a perfect name. Some of you might not be able to PIF yet, but some day you will. When the time comes, you will remember this!

I got mine today, very neat!
Is there something special about the envelope in there or should I soak that stamp off? Cool stamps on the package too!

Hello jser....

Glad you like what I sent. As for the cover, it is yours to treat as you like, but whole covers are worth more than a stamp by itself. One collection I'm working on is trying to find a cover from all countries, most are similar to the one I sent you. This could be the start of your world cover collection.

Hello T....

No need to thank me.....I'm glad to do it.

I have always enjoyed helping beginners with stamps and info. I've got a few ideas I'm putting together so there'll be more that will be ready soon.

THANK YOU!

I received the stamps on Friday, and had a great weekend going thru them. There were over 125 stamps, about half were US and only 14 were duplicates of what I had. Still going thru the other countries. Which most of them will not be duplicates, since I don't have many other countries.

Tom, you are great for doing this. Thank you!
