I have never been a stamp collector as I have never really seen a point to collecting them because it seems a little boring to me,so I do not think I could do it without going crazy,I have seen a couple rare stamps in my life though rather it be online,or whether it be a stamp that a stamp collector has and they are nice to look at,and I can understand that people like collecting them,and the only stamp I can really remember seeing was on of Elvis Presley.

Dear Friend, Yes!! I have founded something unusual, when I joined a bidding session with my fellow collectors. This is the Japanese Occupation stamp of the Philippines which is supposed to be deleted with a 2 heavy lines. The deletion was made, but the stamp can still be read as "Commonwealth of the Philippines". The stamp was the red 36 centavos "Blood Compact stamp", which is issued 1935 when the Philippines was under the United States Commonwealth. During the Japanese Occupation, all stamps bearing the words Commonwealth are deleted. The stamp is really questionable, but I bet you it is very very rare. I think I am the only one who has it. There are many people who ask if I wanted to sell it, but all of them are empty handed. I all hear them cry to let me know that they really wanted the stamp, till the stamp was worth US $ 100.00, but I still declined them all. There is somebody who offered me the sum of US $ 300.00 for this stamp, but still I do not want to sell it.
