ANDA Coin, Note & Stamp Show 2008: Postage Stamps Acquisitions (Penny Black, Sarawak, and Malaya Straits Settlement)

As promised, here are some of the items I purchased from the ANDA Coin, Note & Stamp Show.

This entry will be dedicated to stamps.

Thomas and Friends Tomy Trains Collection

One thing about me is that I like to collect things. I’m not a hoarder though. Hehe. Some of my collections are stamps, coins and banknotes (collection still in its infancy), Hot Wheels cars (also in its infancy), books, and 1:500 scale diecast model aircrafts.

Collecting Coins and Banknotes for Investment Purposes?
