    Those are great looking stamps. I cannot wait for 3.5 years when I retire. I have quite a lot of stamps to go through and sort. I bought a few collections and mildly went through them. My grandfather got my brother and myself started stamp collecting when we were young. We moved onto baseball cards and I currently buy and sell baseball cards on ebay.
    However, stamps are our true collecting love so, I sell a few stamps from a few collections I bought and saved a lotto go through later.

    I only have C4 and C5 in my collection. I'm not an expert in this area, but the centering on yours look fine to this amateur.

    There was a time when I did have enough stamps to throw in the old wood stove to keep warm for a day or two.

    CDDollar. I love the C1 and C2 you have there. The cancel does not take away form the stamp and the centering is oh so nice.
    I think on Thanksgiving my brother and I may go through some of my grandfathers stamp and coin collection he left for me and my brother. It will bring back memories of looking at hem when we went to our grandparents for Thanksgiving dinner back in the 60's and 70's.

    As you can tell I like used early airmails. This came today...PSE genuine/sound. #C17's are tough...

    Take care...CC

    Air mail issues aside from the C3 and C13-15 are very underrated, and undervalued.
    You have some beautiful examples!

  • pab1969pab1969 Posts: 1,057 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I have always loved the old airmail stamps.

    Did we all survive the Snow...Yikes. It always seems that when I order something in the winter a storm hits. I dug this out of the mail box. Take care and have a nice New Years.
