HOME AND HOBBY
Not only the sheer beauty of stamps makes them popular, it is often the difference in paper, origin but also printing errors that make stamp collectors wanting to add a stamp to their collection.
Only a few basic items of equipment are needed to collect stamps. Stamp tongs to help handle stamps safely, an album is a convenient and safe way for stamp storage. The last thing needed is an item to assist examining the fine details of the stamps. Q-scope comes in handy here. With its crisp high resolution image and variable magnification the real philanthropist cannot properly work without a Q-scope. Especially with stamp related blogs becoming more and more popular, sharing the taken images with fellow collectors cannot be done easier.
Some examples of details that can be found on stamps are the paper used, method of printing, the gum, method of separation, overprints or under prints. All seen as never before!
