How do you reconcile the fact that one of the coolest guys ever used to collect stamps?
Beats me. But it turns out John Lennon was a boy philatelist.
According to The Associated Press:
The Smithsonian's National Postal Museum announced Friday it has acquired Lennon's stamp album and plans to display it in October.
The museum purchased the album from a British stamp dealer but declined to disclose the purchase price.
The museum said the album contains more than 550 stamps from around the world, including many from former British colonies such as India and New Zealand.
