I guess the same reason we all prefer different foods and sounds and colors. I think the glue on stamps and envelopes tastes like "morning breath" and I only use self adhesive products now. Some people enjoy the smell of gasoline or permanent markers. But they give ME a headache! Everyone's different.

One of the most commonly problems would be removing stamps from envelopes. The task of soaking stamps would be tedious.

And also I found that you need to have lots and lots of time to arrange the stamps especially when you buy them in bulks.

Not even a regular dining/study table would be enough to fit them all. Keeping mint stamps in good condition despite humidity. Getting stamps are easy. You can get them cheaply on eBay but it is best to consider whether you are willing to spend your energy and time on them.

What is the value of 1942 ration stamps?

Although there are rare stamps, in general WWII food ration stamps in a book of stamps (with some missing) are worth $2 to $5. An absolutely new book of stamps (unsigned) might be worth $10 or more. A book of stamps signed by someone famous would, of course, be worth even more. Loose stamps (not in a book) are generally worthless - a few pennies, if that.
