Apfelbaum’s Corner – Volume 65
Any stamp dealer worthy of patronage should know more about the stamps he sells than the average collector. Granted, unless he is a specialist in a particular field, he will seldom know as much as specialists do about the restricted sections of philately which they so intensely study.
What this means to you, the stamp collector who is buying for his collection, is that you should be able to buy with every confidence from your dealer. You should not have to worry about the more obvious fakes, repairs and misleading items that turn up. These should have already been eliminated from the merchandise which your dealer is offering.
