The rules are simple. Just submit a link to a topic you've started here. At the end of the month, the topic with the most replies from other members wins! No limit on the number of entries. Contest ends April 1. First prize will be a copy of the classic book "Nassau Street" by Herman "Pat" Herst, plus a bonus prize!

I read that years ago. I recall it being really interesting and a great insight into the "earlier" days when stamp collection was really big business.

I'm gonna have to work hard on this one!

Pat Herst's original book and a bonus prize? That's worth a shot!
