    Yes, some stamps are great investments for those who have them. :p

    That seems to be the case at any rate, it still surprises me that stamps can be so expensive

    Thanks for the link. It's very useful. I didn't know about all the terms that comes

    The first link goes to a site that is written in a foreign language and the other two are to do with coins and bank notes. I can't find anything to do with stamp words.

    There must be quite a few collectors of others things on here. Collecting banknotes and coins must be popular. Do they have the same value as stamps? I would be interested to know which is most profitable.

    I'm not sure what is most profitable. I think it depends on what, exactly, you are collecting. Anyone can collect stamps...you can start your collection with a simple trip to the Post Office. Obviously, that collection wouldn't be worth much, but a collection with rare and old stamps would be. On the same token, you can collect currency and it not be worth much if you only collect old coins that aren't really valuable or $2 American bills.

    For me, I collect things as a hobby. I don't really like to count on such things as an investment because you never really know. I knew a girl in school whose parents thought that her massive Beanie Baby collection was an investment to pay for her to go to college. Try to sell those jokers now and see what you get...

  13. I never heard the NBG comment before. I will have to start using that one. I think I can use that for many things in life:)

    Well, as long as you love your stamps, there's nothing wrong with it. Price doesn't matter, but quality and appearance. At least that's my mentality.
