Hello All,

I live in Cincinnati, OH USA.

I collect Italy, mainly Italian Social (not Socialist) Republic postal history.

I also participate in competitive exhibitions, at least I did, until COVID caused multiple cancellations

Hello Number-O-Ne in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. Welcome to Stampboards.

Is your Stampboards name inspired by "numero uno" by any chance‽

I think you will enjoy Waffle's thread where he is posting images of modern issues of Italy:

Hi everyone, I am a South African living in Canada. Currently I am busy catalogueing my husbands' inherited stamp collection (pretty good way to stay occupied during Covid) and have reached the South African part of the collection. I am enjoying reading and learning about stamps and the tricks to identify one series from another. Thanks for the informative discussions. Suzette.

Hello Suzette = Suzette01 in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada.
Welcome to Stampboards :D

Soon you will know a lot about stamps from your cataloguing work, so don't
be surprised if you decide to form a small collection of your own. It sounds
like a collection of South Africa (at least the issues from your lifetime) might
be a satisfying undertaking...

Hello all. My name is Piotr, I live in Poland in the beautiful city of Sopot. I have been dealing with philately for over 30 years (with breaks). I collect German stamps Germania 20 pf blue, with all available prints. I do not consider myself a specialist, but I am always happy to help in areas that are close to me.

Hello piotr = OokamiSopot in Sopot, Poland. Welcome to Stampboards.

Since Sopot neighbours on Gdansk, you live in an area with an intricate postal history.
Do you collect that postal history?

This is how the history of the post office in the Free City of Gdańsk is very interesting. And a lot of collectors of this region.

Hello Mark = ms1 in San Antonio, Texas, USA. Welcome to Stampboards!

Your description of your interests reminds me of the famous Stephen Leacock, who wrote:
Lord Ronald said nothing; he flung himself from the room, flung himself upon his horse
and rode madly off in all directions.

Hi from the UK. Every time I find an item I'm stuck on, do a quick Google and most times Stampboards comes up with a discussion. So, a no brainer to join really, even though it has taken a while ;)

Hi, my first stamp, I was around 10 years old, is still in my collection. For many years I lost interest in collecting, but after I retired, I picked it up again. Pretty soon I found that limiting myself was a big help. I decided to collect only used stamps from The Netherlands and Finland. Not a strange choise, I'm Dutch and my wife is from Finland, so ...
Meanwhile I added my collection on a few online catalogues such as Colnect and LastDodo (former Catawiki). For Colnect I'm also an editor for Finland, Aland and Estonia.
Happy collecting to you all!
