I'd like to take the opportunity to thank everyone for being so kind in replying to a newbies post.
My venture into stamps has been so rewarding from the knowledge shared by the members of this forum.
I know being a beginner I've come up with a lot of basic and boring post but each has been a learning experience for me and for that I'm thankful.
It's not much but if anyone is interested in a duty paid tobacco stamp (seal) send me a message and I'll ship one out to you free.
I run into a few that come off rather easily with the majority of the gum undisturbed.
Again thanks to all.
