GeoffHa,

Definitely too much of it. For just about all of my countries, the first stamp, usually in the 1840's or 1850's to 1950 or 1960 (roughly 100 years of philately),fits into one volume. As I pointed out with France, Volume 2 contains 15 years, volume 3 perhaps a little less. It's annoying more than anything.

PARIS EX. ---Sounds like you got a impressive French collection ,nice job .

I am 72 and also like you spend my life collecting stamps ,I was a member of the Ogden Hills stamp club in Chicago {that is the club that started COMPEX ,the big Chicago stamp show }, the club had a strong German group of collectors ,so I decided to put my money into my German pages and expanded them as part of my Worldwide Collection .They on many occasions try to get me to specialise but I was set on the WW stuff .

floortrader,

I love German stamps and have a 12 volume (Schaubek) German collection. (Bigger than my French.) That includes an almost complete DDR 4 volume collection, one volume Berlin, two volume German States, and 5 volume Including German Confederation, WW1, Weimar, WWII & post WWII to about 2000.

The best part of that collection, in my opinion are the German states, particular Preussia. My Grandfather came here in 1900 to avoid being drafted into the Preussian Army. He was an illiterate farmer. I cannot say I blame him.

Inflation is discussed regularly on the podcast Stamp Show Here Today if you would like to look it up.
