John Lennon Collection to be displayed at World Stamp Show

The stamp collection that formerly belonged to one of history’s best-known philatelists will be on display at the upcoming World Stamp Show in New York City.

According to Rolling Stone, the extensive collection of the late John Lennon — the legendary Beatle — will be on display at the show this May 28-June 4. It’s only the second time Lennon’s collection will be displayed in the U.S.

“According to the Smithsonian National Postal Museum — which first displayed Lennon’s stamps in 2005 — the budding musician began collecting stamps after his older cousin, Stanley Parkes, gifted him a partially filled in album,” reads the Rolling Stone story.
