Welcome to episode #133.  On May 22nd Linn's Stamp News (free plug - this is a great magazine) had three articles that we are weighing in on.  The first is the APS taking the FIP to task (minute 5 marker).  The second is an article on the forever stamp and how stamp collecting is changing the way the post office has to do its accounting.  It also has some pretty strong indicators for the strength of the US Stamp Collecting market (minute 15 marker).  Lastly we address a letter from David Kolls of Regency Superior Auctions and wish our best to him in his plight but take him to task for his opinions (minute 31 marker).

Welcome to episode #126 - Today we talk about a Persident that gets no love - also no stamps (well he got 2 stamps because you cant just skip over him).  Yes we discuss Andrew Johnson who was impeached but you know what - it is an interesting story.  Has a bit to do with what is going on now also.

 

Probably will never get a #stampworthy but his story is interesting.

 

Also - this is a bit late as we moved our offices.  We are back up and running.
