It's time for my annual ritual of adding the new supplement pages to the album, and seeing how many of the spots still need to be filled.

This year's supplement has 11 pages, plus 2 pages for duck stamps. This includes a page each for the Art of Magic lenticular and Sparkling Holidays souvenir sheets. Not counting these, there are 102 spots for stamps.

With the stamps I saved from home & office mail over the year, I filled 65 of the spots (64%). Not bad compared to previous years:

2017 - 54%

2016 - 74%

2015 - 62%

2014 - 67%

I haven't received any 2019 stamps yet... so it might be a lean year.

That's a remarkable achievement! Once you subtract the endless supply of the same boring Nonprofit Org. and Presorted Standard stamps on junk mail, I see very few recent issues on my mail. Most of the mail I get with stamps on it at all is stuff from stamp dealers on eBay using old stock for postage.

MrEos, I am always looking for trading partners for relatively current used US stamps.

What kind of office do you work in? With many bills still paid by mail I've wondered if the local utility or telephone company or similar would be the best place to find new issues in postally used form.

Perf - my office is not high-volume mail, but I pick up 5 +/- needed stamps a month.

wkusau - I sent you an email through the system. If you didn't get it, try emailing me at my user name @charter.net.
