Thank you MKfarm. Yes I really enjoy having stamps as part of my life and routine. I try not to feel intimidated by all the amazing experts here and just put it out there :)

I always love the feedback. Nora.

You have some lovely stamps from the 1898 Trans-Mississippi series, Mrita75. Are there more treasures like these waiting to be revealed here?

Without a doubt, you are now officially beyond the beginner stage of this wonderful hobby!

Thank you Ursa :)

I really like those Trans-Mississippi stamps - hopefully with patience I can acquire a few more. Not sure if I have any treasures, but I will definitely keep sharing as I fill in more pages. Nora.

All it takes to make them treasures is a connection. Even this poorly centered pulled prefs copy becomes a treasure when it was canceled the day my grandmother was born.

Good point littleriverphil. Well I certainly do have quite a few personal treasures in my collection.

ADD: A few more pages that I am still working...

Finally finished my Prexies. One day I'll replace the used with mint like my coils. A few more pages as well, as I got a few more stamps in today.

What album pages are these? And are those split back mounts or you slide stamps from top and then hinge them to the album page? sorry I am a newbie as well, trying to learn options for my collection. Right now I just have them in vario pages, and I like the album view. So might consider it.

Hi StampBoy,

This is the US Volume 1 Mystic Heritage Album. I actually purchased the 3 volume set - in hindsight, I would probably have only purchased the 1st volume as I am not interested at this time in collecting past 1970s - but it is ok, I might change my mind and I have two other binders I use for my Vario stock pages ( I got this set when I first started collecting). I think Volume one you can get for like 24 bucks, which is not bad - I think the pages are well organized and have a nice background and history regarding the issues. In terms of the mounts, yes I have split backs, but I also have cut mounts - another learning for me :) I purchased a multiple size package of mounts and well I didn't have enough of the right size split backs for everything so I do some cutting myself and slip the stamp in from the top. I need to get a mount cutter - which I plan to do soon. I hope this helps!

I can confirm that this is a real nice album for a beginner or even a seasoned collector that wants to work with an album.
