Yes, all common.
but that does not afford any lesser appreciation.
Every stamp is a window into a story, every postmark another.
Some people may get caught in the elitism of collecting
scarcer material only.
It will bust your wallet, and I doubt getting that much more enjoyment.
Let your progress advance in a measured way.

Rod, I couldn't agree more. I love old things for the beauty and quality that went into their creation and use. And like you say, the story is where the true appreciation can be found.
Thanks!

I hope I'm not appearing to pass off the research of these stamps. I really would like to delve into researching even one stamp. Even if it were a common stamp particularly admired by collectors. I've been reading the posts and I enjoy discovering the reason a stamp is prized by collectors.I am putting the best centered examples aside from the loose ones not in this book to be my "prized" stamps for now! All common but lots of fun.

Well said Dorset, I feel the same way about stamps. I am also a newer collector and appreciate you sharing your stamps - very nice! many that I do not have in my collection. I feel a lot of pride when I complete a page :)

An Australian auction house uses the term "art in miniature" quite often.

I think it's an apt description, especially for the older material.

I'll second that.
