I've posted a few times and decided to introduce myself. I collected stamps through much of my childhood, soaking US and worldwide stamps off of envelopes and getting the latest US yearbook every year for Christmas. In the decades since then all I'd done until recently was buy some older US yearbooks.
Fast forward to this year. It may sound silly, but what sparked my interest again was seeing the stamp releases coming out of Ukraine during the Russian invasion. I've made a couple purchases from their postal service, and am really liking the souvenir sheets with postcards and envelopes that they're putting out.
Very recently, I started getting in the US mint commemorative year sets prior to 1968. The rest of the 1960s arrived last week and I got those nicely arranged in stock pages. Now I'm impatiently awaiting the '40s and '50s sets that I just ordered.
I know, I know, I'll run out of the really cheap US year sets to buy soon. What's next? I don't know yet.
I've got a lot to learn and I'll be reading here with interest.
