New Iowa Stamp Club

The newly formed North Iowa Stamp Club is featured in an article that appears on the website.

Reporter Mary Pieper interviewed several of the members including Don Huygens, shown here, sorting some of his stamps at one of the meetings.

According to Mary, Don has tens of thousands of stamps and told her that people with smaller collections tend to have more valuable stamps.

Don is quoted as saying, “I’ve got quantity over quality," and would rather have 400 stamps worth $1 each rather than one stamp worth $400.

Don also said he is always on the lookout for stamps with Masonic symbols on them and likes stamps that have anything to do with trains.

So far just a handful of people have been showing up for the meetings, which began in October at the Clear Lake Public Library. The club meets at 6:30 p.m. the third Wednesday of each month, but that could change if it helps more people attend, according to club member Mike Schultz.
