    I started collecting when i was about 8 years old because I had been given my grandfathers collection and accumulation. I stayed active until I went off to college. I then took a break for family and career. Now that I am retired, I am back to the hobby I have always enjoyed.

    I collect worldwide used stamps prior to 1970 as well as First Issue US Revenues with a special interest in R27.

    Welcome. Teaching is an honorable profession. One of my sons and my sister are currently teachers, and absolutely love it.

    I have about 50 Revenue's, but no R27's.

    Enjoy your time here.

    I too started collecting stamps around that age. I think as a child I just took a fascination to collecting them and the stories behind them, especially since I had quite a few international penpals. So I was always being exposed to interesting stamps from around the world.

    Glad to have you here with us!

    Welcome to the forum! We share the used, world-wide collecting emphasis. Always something to buy when collecting WW.

    Welcome back to the collecting bug... I also gave it up for a few years and then came back. Wish I would have been collecting more when I was traveling all over the world... a lot better to see the collecting groups in person. But there is time... I have so many now that I have to sort through and enjoy every last minute of it.
