Nope, I'll keep turning out quizzes til there are no more stamps left to detail or the black-suited guys drop down from the black helicopters to drag me away.
What's the prize?
Universal acclaim as the Grand High Most Excellent and Most Beloved and Fervently Envied Master of Postal Detail in Our Solar System!

And I neglected to mention that the universal acclaim would be accompanied by the eventual winner of the GHMEaMBaFEMoPDiOSS title receiving an official certificate of declaration elegantly printed on a stamp hinge, which hinge would be beautifully framed in a stamp mount for wall display.
Wow!

Since Blaamand seems ahead, and he will stay there as long as he can, you should at least find a France stamp for "prize", one that does not need a specialized catalogue -

Ahhhh, I'm hoping that there will be many more Friday quizzes before the black helicopters come for me.
Besides, it's gonna take a loooong time to print the certificate on that hinge.
