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. 

Below are the recent purchases and discoveries our fans told us about on Facebook, along with the reasoning behind the buys and finds:

Ron Smith: "Two stampless covers and a nice lot of precancels."

Louis Auricchio: "A friend of mine who visits Ukraine and found a used stamp to save then gave it to me."

Allen Rinnemaki: "A number of mint Canada stamps from Milwaukee Philatelic Society's annual Stampfest bourse."

Want us to add your weekend purchase to the list? Tell us about it in the comment section below!
