Customer Question

i have a collection of stamps of Famous Jewish people.
The collector wrote, (hand typed) about each famous person.
It is amazing the amount of work, and he won a Stamp Society award.
There are stamps and First Day covers.
350 different people are collected, and of course Albert Einstein.
The cover is old and black.
Maybe beautifing the whole collection would make it more valuble...
Individually, the stamps alone, without the collector's note, don't come to much..
it is about this individual's hard work/lpassion that makes this collection so unique...
