I saw this description on Facebook. I like it!

BTW, the stamps were not that old.

You gotta love it!

To a 20 something, very old might mean 5-10 years. To a wizened philatelist, it is something completely different.

It can be funny watching how non-collectors describe stamps.

Yeah we could do a whole thread on that.

My favorite are the eBay sellers who list a stamp album as a 'Stamp collecting book.'

I've always liked the "with original glue" description.

I saw one that described the stamp as "well preserved"

How about "OLD RETRO"? For fun I did an eBay search for "old stamps", cringed for a couple minutes and backed out.
