    I spent $9 in 1968 on a top-shelf prom orchid for my date. I wished I had my $9 back the next day. :shy:

    But here's another pretty orchid stamp:

    $9 was still a fair amount of money in 1969 It would have bought a nice stamp or two.

    Yes, it was and it would have - I think a VF-S Blackjack was around $9 at the time. I was fortunate to have a job with very good tips - made close to $100 a week salary & tips. But its ok. I heard she's been married and divorced x3 so I sort of lost my ticket to the Titanic.

    The following set from Belize shows illustrations from the
    Reichenbachia,a four volume book about Orchids by Frederick
    Sander from 1880´s and 90´s.Sander,a German living in England,
    named his work after Heinrich Gustav Reichenbach,the most
    eminent orchid-authority of the 19th century.Most paintings
    were done by Henry George Moon from England.
    As far as Orchid-stamps are concerned,the reproductions from
    the Reichenbachia are my favourites.
    This set contains fourteen stamps and two souvenir sheets.
    I will show two values per post,so that they will not be to big.
