Hi all, I'm Jerry. I'm a recently retired collector who started in his teens. I collect the orphans of philately - precancels, perfins, stationery, etc. - as avidly as the regular postal issues.
My original handle was idle for so long that I can't resurrect it. But I have benefitted from the knowledge on here many times, and hope that now that I have more free time, I may be able to contribute.
Collecting for the enjoyment of collecting, whatever that might be, is the name of the game. Don't hesitate to ask questions especially if you need basic information and especially more advanced sources of information for any possible topic. You should be able to find folks on this board a little further along on their collecting journey glad to share experiences. Russ
