British Stamp Collector Wins Lottery

Britain's Newbury and Thatcham Chronicle website reports, "A keen philatelist from Thatcham has given the National Lottery his stamp of approval after scooping more than £60,000 with five winning numbers."

Brian May [shown above] won close to £61,354 which at the current rate of exchange equals $98,240.

May is quoted in the piece as saying, ""I have been collecting postage stamps since I was a little boy and have a specialist interest in Austrian stamps. The Lotto windfall will definitely see me sourcing a few choice stamps to be added to the collection."
