    The last time I supplemented my US album was in 2006. I have done little with it since then simply because I was so frustrated by my inability to soak self-adhesive stamps off of paper. I have been accumulating my office clippings and others in a box for the last 6 years. Several months ago I rough sorted the box into envelopes and this was the result. There are at least 4 envelopes full of commemoratives, a bazillion definitives and many others. I have my work cut out for me but I will have a lot of trading material after I am done and I might even supplement my album again....I have learned a thing or two from my friends on SEF. Thank you again. View attachment 2968

    Sorry, Jay, I should be more precise...a bazillion is the number between a zillion and a gazillion...Gazillion, of course, being the largest number before infinity. Just so everyone is clear.

    The silly thing is I just keep clipping off those Liberty Bells and keep throwing them in a box....maybe I will come back to it in 10 years and find a major error that no one else found and make a bazillion dollars on eBay!

    there are all types of varieties of the liberty bells and from I understand it's a quit fascinating subject! Ever see the microprinting on that bell?

    Yes Jay, there are more than one variety, I forgot how many they are, 10-15 of them I think, and I finally have them all. As of today, I still hate those liberty bells.....lol

    I have all the varieties as well and the ability to flyspeck this issue is it's only redeeming quality....

    Along the same lines do you all remember the 37c Waving Flag stamp? Here is a great identifier for these stamps at the weblink below:

    I complain about these stamps but I also believe that the liberty bells and other flag issues will be the 2c Washingtons of tomorrow...I'll bet in 50 years stamp collectors will be looking at all the different varieties and the really difficult ones to find will go up in value...
