    I used to collect stamps eons ago (childhood days) and I still have some of my stamps (and sometimes add a few items that seem interesting). Here are a few to go with the corresponding coins. So, go ahead and post your coins with something corresponding with it...

    @Carl Wilmont , the FDC cover and its correspondings are equally nice. Those Jewish prutahs are always a classic...

    Thanks, @Quant.Geek! Your stamp/coin sets are also very nice! Good idea for an interesting thread - looking forward to seeing other "matches."

    Switching from stamps, here are two small replicas that match well with the reverse of this coin of Hadrian. The first one even has the word "Hadrian" inscribed upon the "step" into the temple. The statuette provides nice detail on the appearance of Artemis of Ephesus.
