Pre 1959 Cuba, US possessions
My dad was Cuban and so I started a collection. Better said, an accumulation. So one day I was at the flea market and met a dealer from Cuba. Nice man. I was 17 or so at the time. He explained the difference between an accumulation and a collection and invited me to his home. Said...go at it..and I put a collection together in a matter of hours. Through many years, a fire and many other mishaps, I've been building the collection up again. It is rather difficult since most will not sell due to the embargo. Easier to find under Spanish colonies, Hispaniola, Caribbean stamps, etc. Dumb when you consider there was a time the island was a US possession. How do you guys feel about the subject?
