"It is surprising that more do not collect the Philippines, which range from 19th century Spanish colonies, through the US era (interrupted by Japanese occupation) to the present-day republican stamps -- nearly all of them in common everyday use. This is a country offering a great deal to those more interested in stamps as stamps than as an investment or a picture gallery." 

--Anthony New, Observer's Book of Stamp Collecting, Bloomsbury Books, London, revised 1989
