OK, stamp lovers, your time has come. SCOTT McCLAIN and CLATSOP COIN, 1008 Commercial St., will host Portland STAMP EXPERT BOB BEALL, pictured, of Harmer-Schau Philatelic Auction (www.harmerschau.com), who will answer individual questions about stamps and stamp collections from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 4.

To make an appointment with the expert, call Scott at 503-298-3898. The appraiser will also hold a general informational session, open to the public, at 2 p.m.

“I have been a full time stamp dealer and appraiser for over 33 years,” Bob Beall says on the Stampappraisalnw.com website. “During that time I have done over 1,000 appraisals with valuations from a $100 to over $100,000, all across the West.” In other words, this guy really knows his stamps.
