I mean that if you are charged postage due because the stamps were affixed by tape then it is a worthwhile addition to the postage due mail collection. A colleague was charged £2 for an envelope with an old "1st class" Machin inscribed by the postman "forged stamp". It wasn't a forgery, just not the current colour. He could have taken up the case with Revenue Protection but it is now in my due collection!

Thanks for your additional explanation regarding the postage due aspect Paul, it's just that your previous reply was a bit vague to understand : definitely a keeper in combination with the PD !

Fred, I don't really fancy trying to use petroleum spirit to remove sellotape or adhesive from stamps. Thankfully there haven't been too many sellotaped stamps coming through our letterbox. I probably threw them out as I don't have a pile or album dedicated to postage due envelopes. Anyway, the ones that come here are mostly from countries outside of the UK.

Good morning Gillian, Paul was just giving a reason as to why the sellotaped stamp could be part of a collection, but in his particular case it was a case of mistaken identity with the colour of a stamp used .
As previously stated I normally bin sellotaped stamps, but sellotape is removable from stamps with a little effort and know-how. You could classify it as restoration !
