Cute story: Many years ago I knew someone who collected stamps. He would buy the entire pane in multiple amounts direct from the post office. He had many dollars worth of contemporary stamps. At one point in time, circa 1970, for some reason, the post office had a shortage of stamps. I don't know if this was a local or widespread problem. They contacted my friend and they arranged for my friend to sell them back a ton of stamps.
