Yes, those are stamps. Salvaged from one of my grandfather’s old garages when I was a kid. They had not been carefully stored, some were damaged by water and stuck together in an old envelope. Most are from the 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s. The ones I checked had little to no value, especially in this condition, but I always saved them, for a project someday.
I suppose this is that “project”! I love all the colors and unique designs from all over the world. I’m a history aficionado, and when it involves travel, mystery, and art, well, I’m all over it! I can only imagine the stories and news that these stamps delivered to all kinds of people all over the world, probably by ship or train, maybe even by horse?
I still have many more stamps, some in rather good condition, so don’t be surprised if you see more stamps in unusual ways! And, I’d love to hear your suggestions, what would you do with a vintage stamp collection?
