Something doesn't ring true here, an collection appraisal over, he takes one stamp and says he will throw it away.?
I would have expected the person to yell or make some sort of commotion,
I guess he and her would have been alone in the office?
After he takes one stamp, how does she then accurately describe it?
I have experienced both sides of human nature, just Wednesday, I drove up to the City, on the way back I stopped to help a fellow jump start his Mercedes (bragging rights for my Ford), then 200Km further on, I stopped to help a fellow that ran out of gas, I drove to the nearest town, filled up his jerry can with diesel ($30) and drove back, He had no cash on him, I just said "drop the money into PO Box 47, if you are passing"
There is was the very next day !
Then I have been at Stamp shows twice where thefts occurred, one was a stamp club member whom hid a rare stamp down his sock, caught on the premises.
