Hello Everyone, I invite all collectors here to consider my offer of free world wide and/or US stamps. I have been collecting over 47 years and I have many, many duplicates. All I ask in return is that you use decent condition new stamps on your request. The first request that arrives at my home will recieve an interesting Philatelic bonus. My main focus has been US and older worldwide issues, but I would like your help learning more about the new issues of the world. There are a great many books written about past issues, but very little covering new issues. You may ask, Why am I willing to do this ?? My answer is that I believe it is the obligation of advanced collectors everywhere to encourage and help anyone that is interested in the hobby. The number of people interested in collecting has been declining for many years, mainly because of the introduction of new technology. If we do not help, who will ? Tell me about your collection, ask me questions, what would you like to learn about, what can you teach me??? Please contribute to this discussion. Tom....nrnotrare.
