    Excellent resource. Thank you for your time to put this together for us. I will have to print it out for future reference.

    That's a very nice list you have made there. Just a few additions more to your list. For India and Pakistan as you have mentioned it is called Rupees, there is another name which is used locally there which is Paisa. Also in Afghanistan, they have their own currency but the primary currency which is used now is $$ there.

    Agreed, it would become so much simpler, then learning all those specific money symbols.

    And it would take all the fun out of it as you would then have a single currency and a single designed stamp LOL

    I wouldn't think so, I'd say the stamps themselves will always remain the same, but the single price of it all would still be much better.

    Hard to wonder what to collect then. :p

    Well I'm sure that it wouldn't detract from the fun of collecting, the currency could be the same yet the images would still be different.

    I see that the link is the Collectors Club if Chicago. There seems to be quite a bit to investigate on this site, I will do that when I have more time. They seem to have links and publications but I doubt it tells you how to profit from buying and selling stamps.

    Its surprising the amount of countries you can get collectable stamps from. Are there any countries where the stamps are worth more? It is a nice list of abbreviated countries.

    Maybe the USA and UK Royal stamps. Just guessing. :p
