Stamp Collection Status

0011

I’ve spent a lot of time doing the normal winter-months housekeeping of my stamp collection: tidying up the database, looking for good deals on Ebay, etc.  With a few recent acquisitions I now have over 5,000 unique U.S. stamps and over 13,000 items total when I add up the new and used U.S. and Spanish pieces.  The oldest stamp in the albums is this nondescript 3-cent George Washington item from 1851.  It’s in pretty good condition for a stamp that was hand-cancelled and went through the mail 163 years ago.
