America’s Darling: The Story of Jay N. "Ding" Darling
Jay Norwood "Ding" Darling, who won two Pulitzer prizes
for his editorial cartoons, was one of America's true
conservation pioneers. Darling's love of the outdoors and
his passion to preserve it is well documented, but
conservationists now have the chance to learn more about the
man who conceived the idea of the federal duck stamp program
and drew its first design. Darling's great-great-grandson,
Chris Steffen, hosts America's Darling, a DVD chronicling
his ancestor's illustrious career.

We have purchased a huge holding of worldwide duck stamps, and are pleased to offer for UNDER FACE VALUE!
Among the 30 different stamps are First of Nation issues from Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
These are very special, one-of-a-kind stamps on which the artist of the stamp has personally drawn or painted a dog, decoy, lighthouse, and/or duck.
The artwork is obatined by commissioning the artist for their work, and generally the stamps take time to complete.
All are either signed or initialed by the artist.
The photographed stamps are examples of some that are available.
Since no two are alike, you satisfaction is guaranteed.
This is a great way to add that special touch to your collection.
