    Very nice! Great scan quality as well. Didn't a lot of countries issue stamps for the World Wildlife Fund? If this doesn't make you a WW collector nothing will. :joyful:

    OK, you two!...Both of you are cracking me up & that's a good thing.

    At this point I don't know exactly where my collecting interests lay.
    So many little time & $$$.
    Thank both of you for your support as it is sincerely appreciated,

    I really do not know much about the World Wildlife Fund, but perhaps of interest is the way my 2010 Scott catalogues this set. The prices for Sc. 589a-601a are all in 'Italics' & when I researched exactly what that meant, this phrase in my Scott Catalogue was the explanation: UNDERSTANDING VALUING NOTATIONS..."Stamps values in italics generally refer to items that are difficult to value accurately. For expensive items, such as those priced at $1000 or higher, a value in italics indicates that the effected item trades very seldom" (?) This set's 2010 value was $1000.
    Maybe other World Wildlife Fund sets are pricey, as well.
    More research is called for.

    eBay has 5 flippin' pages of World Wildlife Fund issues.
    Prices range from a few dollars to hundreds. The higher priced items are mostly for the Imperf. sheets, but some of the perforated sets can run on up to almost $100+.

    Those are some nice looking stamps. I remember Werner posting some World Wildlife Fund first day covers, also great looking stamps. You could do worse as a collecting interest.....but, as you say so many possibilities with limited time and money.
