Richard Hofmann, 77, of Philatelic Enterprises in Alameda, looks over an auction catalog while waiting for customers during the Sacramento Stamp Fair at the Scottish Rite Masonic Center on Sunday. Postage stamp, postcard and cover dealers attended to buy, sell and trade. Items for sale cost a few pennies to thousands of dollars. Appraisals of collections, envelopes and stamps were free, so folks who always wondered about the value of stamps that have been lying around for years could bring them in. At top, Raymond Hinckley, 61, of Sacramento, examines stamps. At left, Eddie Shinfuku, 85, of east Sacramento, is mainly interested in Japanese stamps owned by Robert Chang of The Stamp Act of Belmont.
