"Ah, those green stamps!"S&H Green Stamps....I remember them but the family didn't do much with them.Kids would demand certain brands of cereal...if you collected so many box tops and sent them in with 25c or so for postage, you'd get a 'free prize' or trinket......maybe a 'decoder ring' or something like that. Bubblegum had baseball cards.....that kids would trade around..... (before that they came in tobacco packets)......In the 1950s, every kid was collecting postage stamps. Now, you can't even give away the albums and stamps.....maybe a penny a piece for the cancelled ones, and basically face value to a penny more for unused stamps. They stores will tell you to simply use up the unused postage. They really don't want it. Nor the albums unless it contains the really rare ones you couldn't afford back then either. OH,and 'stamps on approval'? And giant bags of stamps for a few bucks with 1000 stamps? none of which you needed? THen it was 'coin collecting'.....and unless you have a complete collection....it's not worth a whole lot unless it is Indian head pennies.....or silver dollars going back 150 years...t.
