I think it was the edges of stamps that first attracted me to them. Then came the awareness of old stamps. Man, I have loved old stamps ever since I was a kid. I also loved mailing things. I had pen pals plus. I think that may have started with a girl scout badge or two. I love to look at the stamps on eBay. My favorite haunt is Sea Jay Stamp and Coin. I also have a passion for stamps from foreign lands. I love the Israeli stamps above. I would love to blow up the noise pollution one and post it in my window. I live right under a flight path and they drive me crazy.
