As philatelists, we share a nomenclature that probably seems quite strange to non-collectors. Some examples of terms that only philatelists know in context:

Fulton's Follies
Bank Note
Persian Rug

What other interesting expression(s) do you feel only another philatelist would know?

No problem with any of these, except Rods. I have no clue as to what most of his expressions are.
