As part of our continued conversation with our readers, we like to ask Linn's Stamps News Facebook fans to share stories about the philatelic acquisitions they've made recently. 

Post by Linn's Stamp News & Scott Catalogue.

Jace Stamps: "Picked up a beauty 3¢ Large Queen on Laid Paper."

Kathleen Dunley: "Just completing album pages -- 1980's commemoratives and some 2014 stamps I had missed."

Ron Smith: "Three more 19th century covers and a couple of Washington Franklins"

Neil Armstrong: "I bought a sealed deck of Congress playing cards on eBay and found this little surprise when it arrived. I don't normally collect revenue stamps, but was delighted nonetheless."

Neil Armstrong: "Also, I just had some stamps made by Zazzle celebrating March, national 'Half Eaten Jello Salad' month. I know these aren't everyone's cup of tea, but I think they are super fun. And I just can't wait around for the post office to celebrate jello salads."
