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.   

As always, #LinnsStampNews want to know: What purchases did you make this weekend? Tell us here and we'll share it on Linns.com!

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

Matthew Healey: "Another item for my collection of the GB QV 1s green and its uses. An attractive piece - two of the stamps are damaged but it's a lovely complete, crisp strike of the duplex cancel issued to the British PO in Valparaiso, Chile that opened in 1846 and closed in 1881 when Chile joined the U.P.U."

Bob Bechill: "Sacramento Easter Seal's Show of course. Great annual event with plenty of stamps and fun."
