A few days ago a friend of my brother contacted him because she had a stamp that referenced our ancestral home town in Italy, and asked if he knew anyone who was interested in some world stamps. Of course, he knew me, so I got a big boost to my world stamp collection!
I have not finished labeling them yet, and some of them I need to research more, but I scanned some highlights.
The largest selection was from Italy...
Finally, here is the stamp that may reference our ancestral home town, Popoli.
