In my case, I was viewing a beautiful pair of Newfoundland #1 when the pair fell from my tongs and started towards the floor. Instinctively, I attempted to catch the pair with the tongs in mid-air and was successful...cutting both stamps in half.

Another was when I was cutting postage from envelopes, only to discover that one of them had a souvenir sheet in it which was ruined. Since that I always double check for contents.

I did this a couple of years ago. Thankfully only a couple of inexpensive postal cards got chopped in the process.

I feel deep pain and sorrow reading many of these. Now where did I put that business card for the Stamp Trauma Support Group?

Many years ago, purchased a very nice Scott US 133. Put it in my shirt pocket for safekeeping. Unfortunately forgot about it until after the shirt went through the washer and dryer. Stamp was clean but not so nice afterward.
