Walter Dean Myers

In the book Fallen Angels by Walter Dean Myers do you think in your mind that Monaco would make it back to the states and marry Julie?

Based on how the story went and some hints I would say that if the author elaborated more, Monaco would have a happy ending. There is no point in a plot that he is going to die after he was wounded and combat operations starting to cease at that point. Besides the note that Monaco gave to Perry about wearing a tuxedo to his wedding was intentional by the author to indicate he will have a happy life.

Stamp Collecting (Philately)
Saudi Arabia

How much would a 1960 Monaco stamp cost?

Identify the stamp using a catalog. This may involve learning about perforations, watermarks and colors as well as condition. The catalog will provide a value. The value is what a collector could expect to pay for a stamp in fine/very fine condition. If selling, most cases you would be lucky to get 75% of the catalog, unless it is very valuable, then an auction would be worth looking into. The most common American catalog for identification is Scott's. Others are Stanley Gibbons, Minkus and even the US Postal Service Catalog of stamps.

Which is capital city of Monaco?

The capital of The Principality Monaco is Monaco Ville, which is the small district on top of the Rocher (or Rock). This is where the government buildings, parliament and town hall are located. Other well known districts of Monaco are Monte Carlo, famous for its casino and luxury hotels, La Condamine (the port area), Fontvieille (the industrial district reclaimed from the sea).

The capital of Monaco is also called Monaco. It's really to do with the (tiny) size of the place. To avoid confusion the capital is sometimes now referred to as Monaco-Ville, and consists of the "Old Town" that sits upon "The Rock". It is the original "Monaco", and home to the Prince's Palace, Oceanographic Museum and many original Monagesque families also live here on the seaward end. So Monaco is the original town, but through history the borders have eventually become fixed and now incorporate the three other areas of Monte Carlo, Fontvielle and La Condamine. Since the whole lot is governed by Monaco, it is all Monaco now, and you will hear Monaco-Ville being said to refer to "The Rock". It all comes down to expansion and the way the town / principality has grown. If you go there, you would swear it is no more than a mere town in France with its own police and laws, whereas politically it is a country.

Was grace kelly beheaded?

No! Grace Kelly, later Princess Grace of Monaco, was returning to the Palace on 13 September 1982 on the Moyenne Corniche and her car "failed to negotiate the final hair-pin curve" in the road. "[Her] Rover shot out over the edge of the bend... and plunged into a a market garden below", about 100 feet. Grace was taken to the hospital with multiple injuries and remained unconscious, hooked up to life-support. After being advised by Dr Jean Chatelin that she had no brain activity & there was no hope, her family asked that she be taken off life-support & she was gone.

Grace had suffered a small stroke whilst driving, but a "second massive brain hemorrhage" took her life. All quoted material is from "GRACE: The Story Of a Princess" by Phyllida Hart-Davis. Text copyright Phyllida Hart-Davis, 1982
