Don and all I hope this link works. Feel free to move this topic.

Yep, you can get rich collecting stamps acording to Cynthia Measom. Wonder if she is a collector or dealer or bystander?

Which Smile should we give this article? [OO!javascript:insertsmilie('')]

I found the article about one hit wonder bands from the 1970s more interesting (scroll down once you click on the link).

It is every collector's dream to discover a stamp that is printed in the wrong colour or with some outrageous error.

hoosierboy: Just ran across this article today and as bad as this article may seem, I've run across worse recently. Author probably a bystander (I hope). Recently I posted an article of the same ilk as the one you did claiming that Columbian stamps were unusable and only issued as souvenirs.

Morning Dry Tech and all,

Were they referring to the 1893 or 1993 Columbian Issue? We can argue the 1993 issue is more so than the 1893? But then, the term used should be unnecessary?


But then, unnecessary covers many more modern issues.

It is the word "could" that I would emphasize and underline.

It is like one "could" potentially win the lottery by playing.

I would think that such articles are generated as click bait, and the person that did this one does just that: writes, generates click bait such as the long list of articles posted below it confirms.

They were referring to the 1893 issue, though the example pictured was of a used Scott 231.
