Hi and thanks for the kind welcome!
I live on Merritt Island (east coast) near Cape Canaveral/KSC.
Unfortunately I live on the wrong side of Florida (although it is only a few hours to cross). They have a Coin and Stamp show in Melbourne (30 mins away) every month which I have attended a few times. There are usually only a few Stamp dealers there but I have always managed to find a thing or two. Funny thing is I don't know why they segregate them in a separate room. It is like they are on time-out or something (too rowdy, too crazy,
I appreciate the info. I recently retired back in April and I'm really enjoying my return to the hobby. I understand what you mean by the "history" of the covers. I don't have many except for some sales postcards (like 5 bushels of corn for 15 cents, snake-oil stuff - that sort of thing). I love that stuff
I do have a few stamps on the back burner that I'm having trouble figuring out. I can't find one of them in my 1999 Scotts catalog. It looks to be Japanese (Sen) but I just can't find it. Will have to try and post to the correct thread.
Thanks everyone for the nice welcome
. Looking forward to learning from you!
