This week we have had two philatelic emergencies at the shop. Two different customers were in crises because they were out of stamp hinges and needed more STAT. You might say they were "un-hinged" about it.
This is just a reflection of the passion this hobby inspires and the diverse nature of its pursuit. Hinges are rarely used on "valuable" stamps - clearly there are still many hobbyists who are not creating an investment in anything other than joy!
