Taking Advantage.

The Stamp Collecting Report, I'm Lloyd de Vries.

Not only is Scott Publishing the top stamp catalogue and 
album publisher in the U-S....

"We sell every type of supply, from tongs to magnifiers to 
mount cutters. We sell mounts. We have the largest selection 
of albums and supplements that are offered anywhere."
[RUNS :12]

Scott vice president Stuart Morrissey also oversees Scott 
Stamp Monthly, one of the few stamp publications that's 
growing in circulation. But is that because it's a good 
read...or because of the Scott Stamp Monthly advantage?

If you subscribe to the paper, you get a twenty per cent 
discount on Scott's products. Each volume of the main Scott 
Catalogue, for instance, costs 38 dollars in most stores 
and online bookstores...but just thirty dollars and change 
direct from Scott if you're a Monthly subscriber. There are 
six just three at the discount and you've 
saved more than the cost of the Monthly.

The paper really IS a good read..but some say it's an 
UNFAIR advantage.

And that's stamp collecting this week. 

I'm Lloyd de Vries, CBS News.
