Dennison hinges can be reused unless the whole hinge is sopped. I do it all the time.

For small stamps, you can cut the hinge in half and use only 1 hinge for 2 stamps.

It is also much quicker to use hinges than mounts and also less problems with box sizes on pages.

Stampworld has made an attempt to create a unified cataloging system however it lacks depth.

They also have an annoying habit of changing numbers for recent stamps. I primarily use Scott, of course, but I often obtain new issues that Scott hasn't listed yet, even in the Linn's updates. I'll put them on a Vario page with the Stampworld number until Scott assigns numbers. Sometimes I go back to add stamps and find that Stampworld has completely changed the numbers and I can't figure out what's supposed to go where. I assume they don't do this with older stamps, but I've noticed it a few times on very recent issues.

As for me:

New eyes

A lottery win

More time. Years more.

The ability to search for a stamp across multiple platforms/web sites from a single point. For example, I want to be able to choose a U.S. Scott number 525 on a web page and see every copy possible listed from eBay, HipStamp, SAN, dealer websites, etc. It would be a lot of technical work, but well worth the effort when searching for just the right copy of a stamp for my collection.

Hello graphis

Beautiful!

And, about the interleaves mentioned to keep Vario from scratching. Having just gotten an older Supersafe stock book that uses hole punched wax paper, I am thinking that might work. I got my paper hole puncher for one dollar from the dollar store and I will try that. I have a few multi- colored interleaves that have been helpful in another way.

The usual: good eyesight, good lighting, room to spread out. My chihuahua is complaining I am consuming too much space already.

A simple guide matching stamps to the proper Scott/Printz mount to be used in various configs. Or at least knowing the WxH of stamps in mm.... A common database online for all stamps, but includes catalogue numbers (I know.... copyright issues). Then again cannot make it too efficient as half the fun is in the task of looking up stuff.

I am sure there is lots more.
