'Are you into philatelic stamps?' was the second question my now-husband asked me on our first date. I had no idea what he meant or what that was. Now I do, of course. Philatelic stamps are collector items.
My now husband is a total philatelist. He has books of commemorative stamps and collector stamps, and he still seeks them out and collects them today. I don't mind, because they might someday be worth quite a lot of money. I hope I can find someone to buy them if the time ever comes.
Stamps for collecting
