    The monthly coin/stamp show in Ottawa has a healthy amount of stamp collectors hunting, I wonder if there are other forums they prefer? or if they all keep it offline? snail mailing each other? nah probably not

    There are most definitely other stamp forums out there, many with thousands of threads. For whatever reasons, never caught on around here. Like chatting to oneself in a ghost town.

    Nobody uses stamps anymore,,,,,,, everything is done on the internet image

    See, I just posted this and I didn't need a stamp, and it got here instantly. Bad news for the post office.

    Our postal system wants you to take your business else where, because they are loosing money hand over fist.

    My stamps have not gained popularity, I'm going to hold onto them for another decade and see where I'm at. I hope I live that long to see some appreciative value.

  • Most of the chatter on other stamp forums about PSE is why don't they offer more variety with the encapsulation service. They will slab singles and pairs. A lot of people collect blocks, panes and sheets, first day covers, postal covers, etc... And the set registry reflects this lack.of service. I'd submit every plate block I had if they had a registry set for it.

    Look what PCGS did. What I used to know as culls now sell at a premium for "Low Ball" sets. Put some of the marketing guys on this for the stamp side. I'm a share holder and a collector. Why hasn't this happened yet? If they can slab comic books, surely, we can do something bigger than a 1" x 2" piece of gummed paper.

    But that's just my 2 cent Washinton with disturbed gum.
