Worth The Trip

The Stamp Collecting Report, I'm Lloyd de Vries. 

The Postal Service is excited about the big Washington Two Thousand Six international stamp 
show next month.

"There's going to be a lot of first day ceremonies,we're going to have four of them there, 
we've got a great youth area, there's 3800 exhibits. I mean, it's going to be THE stamp 
collecting event for the last couple of years."

Several countries, including Canada, Israel and Bermuda, are issuing stamps at the show, and 
Dave Failor says the U-S Postal Service will issue four, including a special souvenir sheet 
for collectors reprinting classic stamps .... a set honoring six of America's great 
diplomats.... and a joint issue with Canada for the explorer Champlain. But the key one, Failor 
told us last year, is the forty-stamp Wonders of America sheet.

"Colorful images, much like a travel poster, that talk about the largest reptile, the biggest 
alligator, and the windiest place, the largest volcano, and just all sorts of wonderful, kind 
of kitschy, things."

And that's Stamp Collecting this week.
