Holiday trip no time off, as dealer seeks 18 stamps

The Hartford Currant - 9/15/1987
Excerpt: "…27-year-old Stamford stamp dealer's three-day holiday was spent making long-distance telephone calls negotiating a $900,000 purchase of 18 of 95 rare stamps sold last year by CIA employees to stamp traders…He has sold two of the inverted candlestick stamps "for a tick slightly above what I paid for them."...There was a trading strategy in selling the other two stamps, at what seemed to be bargain-basement prices. "Someday I might want to buy them back," Reznikoff said, "and the owners will remember that I gave them a fair price when I sold the stamps to them."" By Robert F. Murphy. pp. B1-B2.
