Hi,
I removed some stamps from news paper wrappers. Some
have color transfer of wrapper on stamps, Many have residual gum
almost all stamps after drying are creased. Should I re soak and remove creases ?. how one would approach his.



your input will be highly appreciated.

Cheers
tikithindi

why did you soak them? You lost all of the historical value this way. Having said that, your question was asked just a few days ago, and if you search this forum you will get all sorts of answers.
"Search" button is on every page
in the upper right corner a bit lower and to the left of where you log in

"All of the historical value"? These are a few stamps, not the Dead Sea scrolls.

hi,
@Peter,GeoffHa,Petert4522 you mean I should not have soaked and remove from the wrapper ?
Wrapper were pretty torn they were given by friends, whom I requested they save for me. Did not keep wrappers in tact.
any way should I keep attached wrapper or piece of paper ?
Thanks very much for reply. will search too so I can read
appreciate very much.

Thanks
tikithindi

tikithindi - I certainly wasn't saying that you shouldn't have soaked them. It's what I'd have done myself.
