At stamp shows, Roy concentrates on offering worldwide lots and collections of both stamps and covers priced from $5 to $500, rather than single stamps and covers. Many of these collections are unpicked, straight out of estate purchases. Other lots range from a few pages of a specific country to packed "mystery boxes" or boxes of covers.
