Question by dolphindaddy: What is the best way to remove stamps off envelopes for my stamp collecting?
I am starting a stamp collection and want to safely remove stamps from envelopes without damaging or devaluing them – any tips

Unless I’m mistaken (my grandfather & my mother-in-law both used to collect stamps), they are more valuable with the postmark and maybe even with the entire envelope. So I would just leave them on and get an acid-free storage box (from a stationery supply store) to keep them in so the paper doesn’t yellow &/or disinegrate over time.
