Columnist writes about his "stamp collection" columnist Bill Ervolino writes about his "stamp collection" that he keeps in a little drawer.

He says, "My stamp collection is colorful and diverse. It contains 32-cent stamps from 1995. It contains 33-cent stamps from 1999. And, it contains all of those 1-cent stamps that I bought to put next to my leftover 32-cent stamps to make them worth 33 cents.

"I have stamps with toys on them, stamps with famous people on them and, of course, stamps with American flags on them.

"Amusingly, these stamps have everything on them but PRICES."

He suggests that perhaps USPS might consider adding aromas to non-denominated stamps so you could just sniff them and be able to tell what they were.

"What does this stamp smell like to you?"

"Hmm .... I'm not sure. Smells like ... 37 cents."

Not a bad idea actually.
