I am a topical collector. One category I collect is swans. The souvenir sheet posted, yet to be issued, is beautiful, as so many other stamps and souvenir sheets featuring swans are. I learned about swans while living in Illinois, where I had an opportunity to observe a pair of mute swans (cygnus olor) making their home in a nearby lake. Only now, as I build my collection, have I been able to appreciate more fully the significance of swans in our culture. Right now I am very intrigued with the Nordic swans issues of 1956. I am seeking all the background information I can amass in order to exhibit them in some future American Philatelic Society meeting. I welcome all comments and suggestions. Thank you for the opportunity to express my interests and admiration for the subjects you have chosen.J GrovesMesa, AZUSA
Such a shame they're so expensive! Way too much for the average collector.
