    Cutoff years in your collection?

    With the proliferation of new issues that are actually intended to generate revenue for government postal organizations I decided to cutoff collecting US stamps at 2001, and only collect worldwide up to 1930. Anybody else use cutoff years in their collections?

    My collection only goes up to my birth year (1976) and decided to collect only North America and European nations. Even with those constraints, my collection is "housed" in 33 3" binders. I say "housed" because a good portion of it is currently residing in plastic totes waiting to be placed into their binder homes. Great hobby, but definitely a time consumer. Wish I had more time to dedicate to it.

    My collection runs probably around 50k stamps. I much prefer to stick to worldwide stamps up till the end of ww2

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    I'm a collector of just about anything. I do collect stamps when I run across collections or the books. other than that I don't know a whole lot about them. I have hundreds of them from collections I bought or found at Goodwills, auctions, garage sales, etc......So, basically I don't have a cutoff, I just grab boxes or books of them whenever I find them, look through them, throw them in a box. I wanted to eventually get into it a little more....Just haven't gotten that far yet. I don't search anything out, just grab whatever I stumble across and not real picky.

    I would like to pay more attention to my hobby. I mostly gather Europe, after World War II.
