Thanks for posting this information, my 10 year old daughter has become an avid stamp collector. Because of Tom (nr-notrare) her interest in stamp collecting has increased dramatically.

Tracy Barber has been providing a great service for a great many years.

I used to read the usenet news, specifically rec.collecting.stamps.discussion.

I don't go there so much anymore; it's a shame the newsgroups have declined as other parts of the Internet have evolved. I wonder if any of the r.c.s.d. folks are SCF members?

If they don't mind some faults, I have some used USA stamps with faults free to giveaway (SASE appreceiated)

These would be available to anyone new to building their USA collection, not just for youngsters. I( could probably come up with 5 packets or so.

Any takers?
Respond here and I'll e-mail ya.


Edited (6/17/09) - faulty USA pretty much gone. Have some faulty used W/W for giveaway still.
