Welcome from Eastern Canada......this is my first Post and certainly would like to have one of my own stamps in the Avatar but will learn. I also started young (12 years old)collecting, with a small World Album (Ambassor Album) compiled by H. E. Harris, received a `Black Penny`at X-Mas from my Dad who started collecting also, but big times, with many collections he bought and individual pieces. At one time he had the Inverted Seaway
(Canada Scott 387a)and the complete Vatican collection + many more. All the collections, with Br. Colonies specialty are now mine and have started inventories only in the past fee years as I was too busy in my practice.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do
