I recently wrote a short article in this newsletter about the PSE Certificate search feature on StampSmarter, and I thought this forum would be a good way to spread the word about it. I'm also interested to hear what other members' feelings are about the newsletter in general. If you haven't heard of the newsletter, the Founder/Editor is Ray Lieberman. The newsletter if free, contains no advertising, and you can receive a copy by just sending an email to Ray.
Ray is a strong advocate for grading, and he is very interested in how it has affected the stamp market. I am a bit more ambivalent about grading, at least in its present state, but I still enjoy looking through Ray's newsletter. In the last issue, he presented extensive data (74 pages!!) on prices realized relative to grade at 39 auctions.
I'm always interested in discussions about grading, and I'm wondering how many members read the 100J newsletter and think it has value. Ray would like me to write an article or two more, so I like to hear suggestions from this forum.
