Common stamp makes for an award winning collection

The Kansas State Collegian in Manhattan,KS, ran a nice article and a great photo (see left) on Tim Lindemuth, editor of K-Stater magazine for the K-State Alumni Association, and a member of the American Association of Philatelic Exhibitors.

According to the article, Lindemuth has exhibited his collection ,which is primarily made up of the 1981-85, 20-cent, "Flag over the Supreme Court" stamps,in both national and international shows.

Lindemuth is quoted as saying one day he hopes win a Reserve Grand or Grand National award and go on to the Champion of Champions competition.

Reporter Nicole Johnston writes, "Although he has collected stamps for 50 years, it wasn't until the early 1980s that Lindemuth became involved with competitive exhibiting of his stamps."

"I became bored with collecting and wanted to do something different," he said in the article.

"I thought, I think I can do that, but I'm going to do it with a modern stamp because so many of the exhibits are the classics, where many people have paid a lot of money and have been collecting for a very long time. I felt like a pioneer blazing a new trail."
