My mother would shop at Gimbels so we would visit the stamp counter. Yes, you could get a few beauties for a dollar. I did look up Jacques Minkus. Interesting story. I think Gimbels only sold mint stamps. Sadly, stamp collecting is another safe hobby from years ago that has almost vanished with time. I still have all my stamps. Their value has fallen through the years though.
