Making Stamps a Hobby Readies
Ben Shapero for Retirement

The prospect of facing retire-
ment in one or two years
troubles many men as they
approach the age of 65. Not so
with Ben Shapero, who is look-
ing forward to the day when his
time will be his own.
Shapero, of 843 Whitmore,
has been preparing for his re-
tirement for the past six years,
when he revived his hobby of
stamp collecting.
Well-versed in the stamps of
all nations, S hap e r o concen-

stamps and sets of stamps, first
day covers, plate blocks and
mint blocks.
While he gathers these
stamps from many countries,
his fields of concentration are
mostly the United Nation s,
Israel and the United States.
He regularly has American
dollars on file with the postal
authorities in Jerusalem and
other world capitals, and, when-
ever a new stamp comes out he
gets it.
First day of issue stamps,
Shapero said, are those which
are sent out on the very first
day that they are on sale to the
public, and the envelope —
always with a distinctive cachet
—is marked with the words:
"First Day of Issue."
This makes them a collector's
item, since they are not only
decorative, but they also rep-
resent a limited numb e r of
copies.
Shapero mentioned that plate
blocks and mint blocks also are
real collectors' items because
they are printed mostly with
only one number for each 100
stamps.

lecting, believes that there is
