Oh wow, nice Scooby Doo stamps you having right there! How long did it take for Frank Welker to send you back?


A few months.

I sent them to him no earlier than August or September of 2020.

Seeing as how he was born in 1946 I figured I should get his autograph while I still could.

A second-hand 2018 Scott Specialized Catalogue of United States Stamps & Covers. I was long overdue for an upgrade.

Received an order from Hong Kong Post today: 2020 Storm Riders

I've never read the manga before, but I liked the art and sword-swinging fantasy theme.

In Metro Detroit today, January 22nd, 2021 the mail brought a regular letter mailed on December 18th from the Chicago area. The 1833 stagecoaches between Detroit and Chicago traversed that route in far less than 35 days.

I just got a letter from Lansdale VA that was mailed on 10 December 2020. The stamp dealer had already replaced my order, which took less then a week to reach me!

Not in my mailbox, but a soon-to-be purchase...

Just finished going through some old albums from a local stamp dealer, and am pleased with what I found.

With COVID, him winding his stamp shop down and transitioning to working from his garage, he now lets me take home boxes of old albums, album pages, and stock pages to go through, at 10 cents a stamp. (I guess it makes sense; safer COVID-wise, and he gets money he might not get otherwise with lots of stamp venues being closed)

Anyway, it's nice to be able to look though the stamps on my own time, and spend the time needed to ID them and determine if I want them.

Here's a selection of what I'm getting (haven't paid him yet!). I realize some of it has a pretty low catalog value, but I find them NEAT historically and visually....and/or I hadn't found any yet (some of the overprints).
Yet, some of it actually is "relatively" valuable. In my eyes, I guess 10 cents for a $5-$10+ CV stamp is hard to turn down! I can always trade it later on!

I wonder, has anyone ever tried to plate these? I spot one small item that may be unique, a little dash on top of the o of union
