Rare Stamps On Display
When I was a kid in the seventies, collecting stamps was a popular hobby. Computers and the internet were not around so people would send each other letters from all over the world and collect stamps for fun. I always thought the Australian stamps were the most artistic and colourful. I had collected enough stamps to fill a few albums. These days stamp collecting is tailored more towards the astute collector rather than kids. The same goes for coins. People are in it for profit or investment rather than fun. Certain predecimal stamps such as the King George V and early Kangaroo stamps are profitable.
