Stamp in a box of cereal

Guy DeWolf , owner of owner of Williamsburg Coin and Stamp in Williamsburg, VA is featured in an article by Victor Reklaitis that appeared on the website.

The 76-year-old Marine veteran has worked in collectibles for more than 40 years, starting in 1959 in Los Angeles and moving in 1970 to Williamsburg. DeWolf said he's loved collectibles since he was a small child.

His favorite story from the Great Depression involves him cajoling his mom into buying a huge box of cereal for 29 cents because it contained a free stamp. When his dad found out about the purchase, he angrily told the young collector to eat every bit of the cereal.

"I didn't even like it, but it had a free stamp inside," DeWolf recalls telling his dad, chuckling about it decades later.
