The end of the millennium brought a flurry of issues commemorating the 20th Century. Postal services figured out they could issue a set for each of the 10 decades with hardly any customer complaints. It was a huge money grab for postal services and a huge money pit for stamp collectors. Those idiot collectors. Fortunately, they actually did a pretty decent job of producing nice stamps! This thread is for those stamps commemorating the end of the 20th Century, or those stamp sets commemorating the 20th Century by decades. This idiot collector will show you his, won’t you show us yours (you don’t have to be an idiot to post pics in this thread, you just have to have the stamps).
Remember, the goal was not the actually highlight the most important events of the century/decades. The goal was to cover as much variety as possible to attract as many topics/cultures/nations (i.e., collector money) as possible.
