    Exploring Stamps on "The Cattle in the Storm" by Graham Beck, (full article or video), (video), (catalog)

    Graham Beck, from the Youtube video channel, "Exploring Stamps" does an amazing job introducing the next generation to Philately. His latest video looks at the United States "Cattle in the Storm" to ask the question... "Is this the most Beatiful U.S. Stamp"?

    Let's show Graham some love and visit his site and take a listen. In the video he mentions Canada's "Bluenose" as a contender for the most Beautiful stamp of all -- so in my video we will look at both stamps.
