Edgar Allan Poe commemorative stamps

An amusing side-story: While addressing business responsibilities on such an overcast Winter's day, the teller notified Me of these commemorative stamps, which I readily acquired for their elegance and as an appreciation of this literary master's writings. The teller chuckled to herself, and when asked why, the combination of the international package sent forth and the stamp full pane possession yielded a price of exactly $13.00 {from Clerk #9, no less!; this type of thing happens all the time}, which I thought is most appropriate, considering Mr. Poe's craft and disposition. All combining towards a most diabolically- indulgent venture! ∞
