Finding a dealer.

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

There are many opportunities to buy and sell stamps by mail 
or on the Internet, or you can visit a stamp show in your 
area. But if you want to find a dealer in your town  with a 
store or office, the best place to look is the Yellow Pages:  
Look under "Stamps for Collectors."

Don't be afraid to ask if the dealer is a member of the 
American Philatelic Society or American Stamp Dealers 
Association and feel free to call those organizations to 
confirm the membership.

Or let's say, for example, you want a dealer specializing 
in...Danish stamps, whether local or not. There are 
classified ads in the stamp newspapers, and once a year, 
LINN'S STAMP NEWS publishes its own yellow pages.

You can also go to the Internet: The A-P-S and A-S-D-A both 
have online directories that let you specify a specialty OR 
location -- in case you're visiting another city and want to 
spend some time at a stamp store. The A-P-S is at 
stamps-dot-org and the A-S-D-A is A-S-D-A-online-dot-com.

And that's stamp collecting this week. 

I'm Lloyd de Vries, CBS News.
