  • An 1857 Russian Empire stamp (Scott #1) was a recent purchase of a Linn's Stamp News Facebook fan.

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

Here are recent purchases fans told us about on Facebook:  

John Mahoney: "Just some year sets, but am very happy with them."

Mike Webb: "Bought a used VF+ copy of US Q8 (parcel post stamp with the airplane) that I have been wanting for a while, and an on paper mixture (about two pounds for only $10) that turned out to be about a third Israel, many with tabs. A lot more than I expected. So it was a good weekend."
