According to a report on Reuters, the United States Postal Service is paying a consulting agency over half a million dollars to assess the future of stamps. If it is recommended that stamps have no future and they should be replaced with alternate methods of paying postage (i.e. credit card methods or electronic payment methods) that will be the end of postage stamps as we know them. Additionally, this will also kill the stamp collecting hobby. There has been a lot of discussion about how to "save" the coin collecting hobby since very few young people are getting involved with it. The membership of the A.N.A. is getting older and shrinking.
What do you think? Should a similar company be employed to help us find a solution to the "coin collecting hobby problem?" Is there a problem? If so, can it be solved? I have my thoughts and opinions and I would like to see yours in the comment section below.
