AHG merit badge Special Delivery focus on stamp collecting. I know philately is not cool to
some most people, but Lily has enjoyed working on this merit badge. It allowed her to connect to her grandpa in a new way. She is currently working on this badge.
Requirement number seven looks into the story behind each stamp. She is to select 10 stamps and write the story depicted on each. If you are working on this requirement start by printing the file below twice.
After selecting ten stamps, head to www.arago.si.edu. “Arago is your resource to the study of philately and postal operations as seen through the eyes of the National Postal Museum.” The search option allows you to learn more about each stamp, including the issue date and location. It also tells the history behind the stamp.
