Scouts Earn Their Stamp Collecting Merit Badge

Eleven Scouts graduated from my Stamp Collecting Merit Badge workshop today in Northridge, Calif. 

Scouts learned how to soak, hinge, and mount stamps. The found out about first day covers, where to get stamps, how to use tongs, preserving their collection and various types of albums. They also designed their very own stamp. 

Congratulations to all the Scouts and a big thank you to The American Philatelic Society, The Los Angeles Philatelic Society, The National Association of Stamp Dealers, and Mystic Stamps for providing materials and/or financial support.
