Welcome to Episode #146. Today we talk about the small island of SARK which is in the Guernsey Islands of Britain. Look on a stamp of Guernsey with a map and Sark will be the small island at the bottom, just north of France. So why talk about it? Well this is the last feudal holding in the British Empire and it ended in just 2007. (Minute market 3)

 We also received a nice reference lot from Tony (Check his stuff on eBay at BarneysStamps) – Fake coils and Kansas Nebraska overprints – Thank you Tony (Minute marker 11)

 Lastly we discuss stamp shows and if we had a magic wand.
