    i have the scott national album, vol 1 & 2. got them with the green binder and slip cover, plus stamps inside for $100. some of the stamps inside include #11, #24, #26, #65, #73, #76, #77, #94, #113 (2 of them actually!), #114, #116, and tons of post 1900 stuff, including the whole overrun series!

    Wow, what a deal with some nice stamps. How do you like your Album. I have a Scott album for Great Britain that I bought last year. I paid $250 brand new. I dont really care for it. It has 2 albums with slipcases. The main reason I dont care for it, is the page size, 9 x 12 I think. Also there are not pictures for all the stamps.

    Now my Mystic US album, I LOVE. It has 3 albums and has all the pictures for all the stamps. I know Sam has the same album too.

    i love the usa album! (i wish i had volumes 3 & 4) it has pics for the stamps, unless it's a "repeat" series, like the 1922 perf 11 series and the 11x10.5. only the first series gets the pics. i can deal with that.

    What year does it go up to??? If you looking to buy vol. 3 and 4, you might want to talk to Bill, his website is http://stores.nolastampshop.com/StoreFront.bok

    Bill also is a member here, very nice guy, met him a couple of times and bought mounts and the GB album from him.

    vol 1 goes to 1934 (#1 to #751), and vol 2 is 1935 to 1976 (mine is missing a few pages and goes to 1968, #1364. used for less than retail value, can't complain)

    You collecting the better years anyway. Although I have the pages up to 2011 and collect them, I dont go out my way or buy the modern stamps. I believe the most beautiful stamps are the engraved stamps and all of those were before the 70's lol

    The "crap" they produce now are more like stickers, that kids would put into a sticker book......:eek:

    Yes, now that you mentioned it, The Jazz stamp last year was part of New Orleans history, so I do have the First Day Covers. And the Louisiana State stamp comes out this year, so I probably will get them too. lol

    I buy all my stamps from the post office website, you can get the first day covers there, and all the new stamps as they come out. and shipping is only $1. Dont matter if you buy one stamp or a thousand stamps. lol Trying to find the new stamps locally can sometimes be impossible. :eek:
