I Went Through My Grandpa's Closet and Found an Egyptian Stamp Collection Spanning 7 Decades

Resident nerd Mostafa Elezaby shares his collection of stamps dating back to the '40s.

Ok, fine. I confess. I used to be a major nerd as a child - I still kinda am - and before I ever had a life (and by life I mean CairoScene) I used to spend my time collecting stamps. Why? I'm not really sure. I guess I thought one day I'd sell my collection and make big bank off of it. I probably won't. 

Now the majority of these DID come from a binder found in the back of my grandfather's closet - nearly a decade after he passed. So maybe it was just that sentimental little bitch side of me that waned to connect. Whatever the odd reason a child does what they do, I ended up with these little treasures.

Check out the whole collection below:
