I think detailed coverage of stamps, coins, bills, &c is well within
the scope of
Wikipedia; to the extent of eventually having one article per item for
items that look
significantly different from one another.  Although the list of
misprints or misstrikes
for a given stamp/coin should be listed uner a single aticle.
