Looking for a windfall. 

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

With the economic downturn hitting home for many people, some are digging out old stamp 
collections, hoping to cash them in.

First, let me say that we stamp collectors hope you'll consider continuing all or part 
f the collection.. Stamp collecting can be an affordable, low-key hobby. 

And, for that reason, chances are the album you found in the closet or attic won't 
provide a windfall. Aunt Martha probably didn't spend that much on it. There are many 
ways to have fun with stamps other than collecting expensive rarities.

But who knows? Maybe your aunt or grandpa found something rare. Also, collecting styles 
change, and what was "out" may now be "in." For example, don't tear the corners with 
stamps off old envelopes. NOW they're worth more intact on the envelopes .

So before you try to cash in the collection, do a little research to get the most money 
for it. I've got an article on the Internet, at virtual-stamp-club-dot-com with some
