Very nice, Rod. Almost every time you post pictures, I keep thinking we have the same collection.

We do Nicholas
All the common stuff. (which I adore anyhows)

You shall notice if searching (say) " eBay Cameroun collection"
the pages offered match our own.
Blighters, lift off the valuables, and list them singularly (at vastly inflated prices)
This is the nature of the beast.

Here's two of my similar pages. Sad to tell you we don't have the exact same collection, but pretty close!

Very nice Nicholas, a step up from my pages.
The Elephant series is lovely.

The Cameroun Farmer and Cattle is a poignant stamp for me,
It was the first stamp, as a six or seven year old, I ripped in half, trying to remove it from a page.
It broke my heart at the time, little did I know, there are millions of them.

PS: You are convincing me of the value of "clear mounts"

Thanks for the kind comments, Rod. As for my pages being a step up, not sure about that. Your pages always look very nice and you take the extra time to add more information to them. I'm about as basic as it comes with respect to mounting. I picked the standard cream color paper and used the non-fancy Steiner pages. I decided long ago to use clear mounts to hide my mistakes in cutting mounts crooked (even with a mount cutter) and then sometimes mounting them a bit crooked as well. Ultimately, each collector likes what they like. Just happy to be part of this forum for the help it provides and the sharing of beautiful stamps. Going through the process of mounting country by country lets me see all the stamps at least once and then the mounted pages when they are done before going into the binders.

That's a great story about the Farmer and Cattle stamp. I too have ripped a few stamps over the years and I'm sure I will damage a few more before I am done.
