I decided to go ahead and join after months of reading posts. Looks like some great people here.
I started collecting US back in the mid 70s with my dad. Started out with a Harris Liberty album. Stopped collecting about 10 years later and finally got back into it last April. I mainly collect US Commemoratives as I can only stand so many flag, liberty, George and Benjamin stamps. I keep most of my collection in Scott Specialty albums (Always was jealous of my dad's Scott National albums)with custom and stock Philosateleia pages with Mystic and Scott National pages from 1990 to present (Got lazy editing pages to reconnect se-tenants). I have a separate album of US Christmas singles, plate blocks and sheets (all custom pages) and going to expand to Canadian Christmas stamps and Christmas seals. Overall, I'm slowly collecting a small hoard of Canada stamps and have an album on the way from eBay
. Just a cheap Minuteman up to 1989 as I'm not sure how serious I'll be with Canada.
Anyway, glad to be here and I look forward to actually interacting with others instead of being a wall flower.
