Feb 2, 2015, 10 AM

As part of our continued conversation with our readers, we like to ask Linn's Stamp 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:

  • Bob Terry: "A few Hindenburg covers on eBay."
  • Matthew Healey: "A few more GB Machin postal history items."
  • David Williams: "Picked up some nice, earlier PRC and some Manchukuo items."

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