Sad news to report to all you older and senior members here .

I hate to report to you, the stamp dealers NICKEL box is dying a quick death . This after his father died when eBay started and his father the TWO CENT box, pick a 2 cent stamp box died back around 2002 . We seen his father live for over 50 years but now the son is dying at age 20 or so . I lived for years with those 2 cent stamp boxes .I actually build my collection with his father and so did millions of other collectors .

But I see the new son standing at the door and he is twice the man his father is ,so lets welcome the DIME BOX at the dealers tables at shows and bourses . Your starting to see modern U.S. Comm. stamps selling for 25 cents each and you pick those out of a binder not a box.

Met my first 2˘ box in 1964. Discovered in a small antique store in Portsmouth NH. It was a wonder for a young stamp collector of meager means.

Our local club, the Asheville NC Stamp Club, has a nickel box at every meeting. It is kept refreshed from donations, includes stamps up to around $5 CV, and is very popular. In fact, when trying to give presentations there is always a few folks remaining huddled around the nickel box during the entire meeting.
