Default Sierra Leone Stamp

Yesterday in the mail for my Birthday, I recievd a wonderful Pern collectable. Our extremely lovely and generous Cheryl, gifted me with the stamp from "Sierra Leone, that commemorates the Dolphins of Pern, by Anne. The stamp is part of the Fantasies of the Sea collection from that country. Here is my beautiful stamp, and thank you so much for it Cheryl . It was the cherry on the top of my Birthday celebration.

A nice collectible indeed Noticed the misspelling of Anne's name?

I'm glad you like it!

For anyone that wants their own, I did a Collecting Highlight on it a while back, and I think I included instructions for finding it from specialty stamp shops online. Costs less than a brand new paperback these days, so it's an affordable collectible as well as unique!

I love my Dolphins of Pern stamp, and that it came from Cheryl just adds to the value of it for me.

Suzy, I am sorry about not answering this earlier.... .....Yes I do have some very wonderful friends , and they have some marvelous collections as you will find out as you learn more about them in here.

I have a growing normal collection, not one like the ones that my friends all have!!! They all have the real treasures that are out there in their collections. My collection is all normal books and treasures that I have had my husband, or "friends", or just plain good luck lead me to.


P.S. Thank you for the Birthday wishes!!!
