When I was a young lad of about 12 my shop teacher got a bunch of us interested in stamp collecting. He started us all off with a hand full of stamps from all over the world. I can remember sitting in front of a old kerosene stove on winter nights working on my stamp collection. I learned a lot about foreign countries some of which don't even exist anymore. Stamps were advertised on march books. $ .10 here and $ .50 there every few cents I could get went for my collection. Harris was one of the big stamp companies back then. Great winter time hobby if you lived in a cold snowy climate. I collected stamps from all over the world up until about 1975. I put my collection away in a cedar chest and it has rested there silently for the last 38 years. There are over 100,000 different stamps from all over the world prior to 1975. Some day I need to sit down and go through it again just to bring back old memories. Seems like not many folks collect stamps any more. Great hobby to learn history and geography.

i was a huge stamp collector when i was young Jim, i still have over 10,000 stamps, i brought them to a collector and he told me they have NO value what so ever because they are USED. I do have full sheets of stamps my parents started buying me in 1992 up until about 2000 and they are safely packed away, i was thinking about selling them to possibly buy something for my Christine Very Happy

I never collected anything useful, just assorted junk, parts, and old beer cans. I used to go around to the heating and air contractors, plumbers, and outfits that did remodels, and ask if they ever found old cans in the attics, cellars, or inside walls of old buildings. This paid off, as many of the workers remembered, and saved them for me. At one time, I had close to 5,000 different domestic beer cans, but after moving out west, I had no good place to display them, and about ten years ago I sold a bunch of them on E-bay, and just kept my favorite fifty or so.
I had no idea what some of these were worth, I got better than $700 for a few of them, and one guy traded me a '64 Mercury parts car, two antique gas pumps, and $400 cash for one he really wanted. Crazy, but true. I'll post a few pics of my 'keepers' in a different thread.

I have a family member that collects the stamps and coins. He has very valuable stuff although I know nothing about that stuff. I remember he showed me what I believed was quarter and actually was a very rare silver dollar. LOL.

I'm currently collecting dust as I get older... ha

I have a few stamps but I've never actually placed them in a book for anything.
