If it please the court, I'd like to post the pages of this junior collector's book. I am a little embarrassed at the condition of some of them, but I'd appreciate it if you clue me in to any that might be of interest.

My areas of interest are US and Newfoundland. I will be tring to get some sort of order from this collection. Eventually, I would like to slowly replace poor quality with good. Just looking for a fun pastime to share with my grandsons.

I'll just go country by country starting with Austria (Argentina had very bad examples!). And, yes, I know there are some Australia stamps in with Austria! These belonged to my grandfather's brother-in-law

As you say, this is a junior collection, in this case, a child's album that didn't get very far. If you want to carry on with the album - and if its condition merits carrying on - you shoukd be able to do so without spending much money, as it wouldn't have held spaces for expensive stamps. Enjoy filling the pages!

Yeah, definitely a starter book, but I think I can salvage some better ones at least to have a start. Thanks!

I would take a step back, and reconsider.
There is nothing embarrassing with that collection,
Stamps are in fine condition, the ones with postmarks proudly displaying the work they carried out in duty for which they were produced.

Rod,
Thank you for that. I really am excited to have these to look at and display. I appreciate the kind words.
