I collected stamps when I was a boy. I think most boys did. Later, in the 1970s, I started collecting US commemoratives. In the 1980s, strapped for cash, I took my collection to a dealer and he told me it was worthless.

I was never a serious collector. I didn't concern myself with misprints and rarities and all that stuff. Serious collectors despise modern commemoratives and think too many are issued in too great numbers. My attitude is we're talking about little coloured labels you stick on envelopes.
