Fans of John Lennon from The Beatles can soon enjoy the legend's stamp collection, which will be displayed for public at Smithsonian's National Postal Museum in October. The museum purchased the album, contains more than 550 stamps from around the world, including many from former British colonies such as India and New Zealand, from a British stamp dealer but refused to mention the price.
Going on details about the prestigious collection, it doesn't focus on stamps featuring music, but indicates some artistic interest on Lennon's part. The album, printed in about 1950 and was given to Lennon by his cousin Stanley Parkes, has images of British monarchs in its title page.
