    Nice article. The only part I didn't agree with was the last bit. "The true collectors are apparently an extinct breed" being far from the truth. Because of my lack of Hebrew I do not go to a stamp club in Israel although I have done in the past. But that apart, I am active with stamps as many hours as my family and work allow and would most definitely classify myself and many Stamp collecting friends 'True Collectors".
