Old postage stamps have recently come into my life with an important meaning. I have just inherited my Grandad’s stamp collection. A collection that he has put together over a number of years and clearly was very passionate about. As you can imagine I am incredibly proud at been given his old postage stamps collection and and this article is in part my tribute to him and his collection.
So why I inherited his old postage stamps collection and not other members of my family? Well the reason is that when I was younger I used to sit with him on his bed when his latest set arrived, whether that be a first day cover or presentation pack and I would watch him mount the stamps.
I have to admit that I do not remember an awful lot of these experiences but apparently I loved doing this with him. He always said that the stamp collection would belong to me at some point. I then sort of forgot about the collection until recently when my Nan started telling me about it.
So I decided that I wanted to take a more active role with it and add to the collection myself. I now have the old postage stamps collection in my bedroom which I plan to catalogue.
I have been thinking about how I could add my bit to the collection. I want this to be some kind of tradition in my family. My Grandad has many albums of old postage stamps. But I think that if I could add one album then pass it on to another member of my family then over time we would have built into a fantastic collection that spans many generations.
Also if each of us adds a bit our own personality to it then it should tell a story. I can imagine how great it would feel if I inherited an album which say covered 500 hundred years old of my family. Well one of my descendants will inherit something like that one day.
So what am I going to do now? Well I am first going to catalogue them. I am going to buy a book on old postage stamps from Amazon or Ebay, one where it contains all the previous stamp editions.
I will then go through my Grandad’s entire old postage stamps collection and tick off each one.
I know that he has some unusual stamps which probably won’t be in the books but I am sure that most will be covered. By unusual I mean from abroad which he must have bought specially or would have been bought for him by friends and family on holiday.
My first idea to add to the collection is to get First Day Covers for my close family. I think that this will be a way of including the whole family in this experience. I will then get a First Day Cover for important aspects of our family’s life, things like moving house, newborns and marriage etc. It will then tell a story and also continue the theme of First Day Covers in his albums. My Grandad obviously loved First Day Covers. It is a great way of documenting things because of the date on the envelopes.
