Hello and Welcome Back!
Today’s new listing in my Etsy shop Old Raven is a wonderful old stamp album from the 50s.
To begin with – this album is in truly amazing condition – near perfect for being 70 years old! The cover, binding and pages are all in great shape.
But of course it’s inside where all the action is – over 350 colorful postage stamps from days long gone.
There’s quite a few cancelled envelopes and other bits of ephemera here, too. And an important note: this person new what they were doing – everything is properly mounted with glassine hinges.
Look how beautiful these stamps are – mini works of art each and every one. This book and it’s contents were certainly cherished.
I love those little glassine envelopes. I have a number of different sizes and I use them in my crafting whenever possible. They’re fun to tuck little treasures into that can be seen but are protected. In this case – unused, uncancelled Greek stamps.
This would make a treasured addition to any philatelist’s collection or what an amazing start for a child to be introduced to the world of stamp collecting.
