Seriously, he describes a cancelled stamp as a stamp with some kind of ink pressed on it. Too funny.
He may want to stick to coins or describing rare video games or something other than stamps.

I think we should all start commenting on the video giving him a lesson. That's tough to watch. Thomas Jefferson? He doesn't even know his historical figures.

He isn't too impressed with the Hawaiian Missionary because of its simple design.

The certificate of authenticity tells one "how authentic it is".

I guess I take my stamps 'mostly authentic', with a dash of 'partly authentic'.

He's not interested in accuracy. He is interested in getting 100K subscribers for his channel. He will take the sensational track to do it, because he knows it sells. Reliable information is not his game. Maybe someday the Enquirer will come knocking with a job offer.

Stamp Collecting has again been made the butt of ridicule by cheap distortion dressed as enthusiasm. He doesn't care.

Videos like this are the basis of many of the ridiculous misidentified stuff seen on eBay. Note he doesn't bother to specify what makes these stamps worth more than their look alikes. Probably because he either doesn't understand or care to. He seems a nice young guy with a budding business of collectibles. Peddling baseball cards doesn't qualify you for stamp dealing unless you put time into getting a basic understanding of it.

Hi all. This posting of mine is not a joke, so, I will explain what I saw. It was posted by a lady who really knows nothing about stamps. On this particular posting she showed some Canadian stamps. She commented on the war issue and stated 'here is a Canadian stamp with an unnamed man in uniform (King George VI) and a stamp from the Centennial series which she stated 'different Canadian scenes with a lady in the corner of them' (Queen Elizabeth II). If that isn't bad enough, she also shows stamps with creases, tears and corners missing and describes many stamps which are so common that they are in any collection as 'rare and valuable'. I still say the word 'rare' is used all too often and loosely.

I think that the lady means well, but, really should do some research on the items before she shows them.

My 5 cents worth anyway. <G>

Thanks LordinVader.

Bujutsu: I may have seen the same one a couple of years ago. Most stamps seemed to be from the 50's or 60's. "Here is a blue one with a bridge on it, Here's a blue one with a train on it" And so on.


My favorite quote was "Remember, because of their age, these can only go up in value!" Or something like that.

Idiots abound, sometimes doing far worse damage then this crap.

This rubbish is all about getting 100K subscribers and $$$$$ from YouTube for the advertisements...

Pick any topic or subject, not just stamps, and you will find similar puerile nonsense.

I've run into a couple general collectors recently who are woefully uninformed on stamps specifically, but it doesn't seem to stop them. The one very nice lady who consigns at a local antique/junk store, and knows her kitchenware and furniture, will buy random boxes of stamp junk for $50 sight unseen, because she's under the impression that old stamps are always valuable. Then she asks me to go through it, and I find around $5 worth of stuff and try to do a bit of education. But it's an uphill battle, as she has it fixed in her mind that a rare "1 penny black" worth enough to retire on is just around the corner (or in her case, at the bottom of the next box). Probably she's been watching videos like the one above!
