    Topic: Coins & Stamps
    Stamps. Coins. Currency. These are magical things to both collectors and non-collectors. They are art in miniature, providing a window to another place and telling us about the past. The International Society of World Wide Stamp Collectors will be on hand to answer questions and will have stamps and information about collecting to take home. Volunteers from the National Postal Museum & the Washington, D.C. Stamp Collectors Club will demonstrate how to prepare stamps for collecting albums. Montgomery Coin Club members will exhibit and discuss the hobby.
