Hello fellow collectors....... I am offering FREE stamps to any collector in mylot. All I ask is that you send me a request for them by regular mail with good condition new stamps on your envelope. I am trying to collect a new cover/envelope from as many countries as possible. Just send me an email(PM) and I will give you my address. The FREE items will be a mixture of 100+ mint and used world wide, US or a combination of both.......whichever you prefer. Can you tell me a better way to get stamps for your collection? Tom

Folks, this guy ROCKS! I have sent him three covers now and every round of mailings I send him he always makes a GREAT show! I mean, I feel bad on this last one like I am taking advantage of him or something. He sent me a super group of stamps! The postage on the envelope of the stamps he sent to me was three eight cent stamps from the late 1950s & 1960, Champion of liberty series! None of which I seem to have in my album but I can't mount them as he has me collecting covers now too! The rest of the postage was the six and nine cent stamps from the 1938 presidential series! I hope he doesn't send all his mail with postage like this. I mean, seventy year old stamps to pay for the postage! Talk about making an impression! As for what was inside his mailing. I can only think of one word to describe what I got. "AWESOME"! If you collect stamps you really should take nrnotrare up on this offer. I can not imagine anyone would be disappointed!

Postage (covers) - Some of the postage Tom has used to send me stuff.
Here is a picture of some of the postage Tom has used to send me stuff. Keep in mind that what was inside was better then what he used to mail the stuff to me! Best picture seen here:http://i118.photobucket.com/albums/o91/RealIolo/Im000085.jpg Thanks again Tom.

I don't collect stamps but was perusing your discussions and saw this and needed to comment. What a kind thing you are doing. I know that it probably increases you own collection with new stamps but it really makes my day to see that kind souls are still around. Thanks for the smile.

I would love to take you up on your offer if you are still doing it. I used to collect stamps when I was in school but hard times stripped me of that enjoyment and I am just now in a position in life where I can restart my collection.

Hello 7800809..... I collect used envelopes with cancels and stamps on them. Envelopes that carried letters to someone. I am trying to collect an envelope from all the countries involved with mylot, and from each of my mylot friends. Good condition new stamps are the ones you buy at the post office to send mail, stamps that are not used or damaged. Would you be interested in creating a collection like this starting with something from me ? If you would like to help me with my collection, add me to your friends list so I can send you my address.

hello. its pure irony that i found this discussion. your offer is very generous and i have a carrot to dangle in front of you. i was given a bunch of stamps i know nothing about and they range from all over the world as well as postage price. some are "unstamped" if you know what im talking about. they are in fairly decent condition and would love to posibly trade if you are willing. add me to your friends list and let the trading begin. dave

Hello white_tiger..... My main interests are leaning more towards postal history......whole covers/envelopes that been sent through the mail, of any age. I enjoy older material and stamps for the most part because they remind me of my younger days when I had just begun my collection, but there are also many newer items that I find appealing. It is not necessary for you to send anything except a request for my free stamp offer, but if you choose to, I will gladly add whatever you send to my collection. Thank you....... Tom

I did not know if they were used they were of value? anyway send me a message and thanks for being so kind, You are a very special person, bye for now lilyruth

Hello lilyruth.... I am pleased to have you respond to my discussion and my offer of free stamps. I have sent a request for you to add me to your friends list so that I can send you my address. I am in the process of creating a new type of collection. The basic idea is to acquire items of mail from all the countries involved with mylot and something from all of my mylot friends. Would you be interested in something similar for yourself ? You must still be quite young, I don't consider items from the 1930's to be very old. Maybe it's just because they were very common items when I first started collecting. All of the most expensive stamps in the world are used stamps. The one with the highest value is a used US stamp valued at more than three million dollars !!! There are many stamps that are worth more used than mint. Newer items available at the post office now are extremely difficult to find used on cover/envelope as they were meant to be used, still in good condition. In the not too distant future collectors will be very interested in locating these items for their collections. Not everything will be worth a lot but the small amount of material being saved will create a shortage which will limit what is available for collectors. I do not know everything there is to know about stamps or the hobby in general. I have been collecting a little more than 48 years and in that time I have acquired enough knowledge to know that I don't know enough. There are still plenty of things for me to learn. Happy collecting..... Tom

Hi Tom! I would like to accept your free offer. I bought a stamp collection in an album at a garage sale for 50 cents last summer & it spurred my interest.Most of the stamps are foreign (non-US). Can you recommend a site where I could find information on my stamps? Thanks for the offer. It's such a pleasure to know there are still good people out there. Nancy
