Stamp market up because of Washington 2006

Randy Neil writng in his MarketView column at reports, "Dealers and collectors involved in the commercial end of the hobby should be watching the philatelic marketplace more closely than usual in the wake of the most successful international stamp show ever held. If history is any indication, the stamp market will enjoy a period of better-than-normal growth and more activity for a number of months following this great event."

As a result of Washington 2006 (and the massive media attention it received) Neil feels, the stamp market has received a "major shot in the arm."

"Because dealer stocks have been decently depleted---because of this high demand---and the demand on the part of collectors remains at a spiked level, we are going to witness higher prices and even more increased demand for good quality, better-priced stamps and covers."
