Hello again amadeus. Catching up on old threads...well I didnt take my stamps to be valued but I did take a whole lot of used ones to put in the missions collections box and they do get something for them! I used to have lots of penpals in the days before internet and still had their letters so pulled the stamps off them. Sad I dont write to them anymore but most all have moved on. As well as in my own country I had overseas penpals in USA, UK, Australia.
