Detail


The acquisition of this scarce and handsome stamp was marred by the necessity of dealing with an obnoxious, arrogant stamp dealer, a specialist in Vatican stamps who haunts eBay. All collectors sooner or later run into such characters, who seem to regard their businesses as platforms from which they can hurl shrill insults at their "inferiors," like some third-world dictator in a polyester uniform festooned with tin and pewter medals. This guy's pajamas probably have epaulets.
