Looking forward to participating in this community.
Welcome aboard, Willsher.

We have quite a few members who regularly attend Stampex, and often try and arrange a get-together either at the show or in central London to co-incide with it.

Watch this space, as there may be a thread starting soon in regard to the February event....

'Welcome Willsher! I have also been a 'regular' at Stampex and haven't missed any show since 2009. I hope to be able to make it for the next one, 19-22 February 2014. Also watch out for society meetings - there will be quite a number of them in connection with Stampex.

Welcome to Stampboards, Denis :D

Please take the time to wander around, and get a feel for the place. Up the top of the screen is the "Search" function, as well as down the bottom of the page where this site's specific "google" search bar sits. Both of these can be used to look up items which will probably have some information here - somewhere.

We do have members from Russia, so if there's nothing already on the board, you might like to ask a question in the You ask the questions - SOMEONE will have the answers! forum.

About me.
I'm a retired Civil Engineer who many years ago collected Australian stamps.

I've now decided to again get involved in the stamp scene.....many things appear to have changed over the years. My first big surprise is the number of stamps Australia Post now issue.

On perusing the adverts I see some 230 stamps (+4 MS) are required for the 2008 Seven Seas H/L album.

My first forum question will relate to this.

Many thanks.

Hi, I'm Peter from the UK and I have been collecting Polish stamps for a few years. Have built an almost complete set of inter-war and early post-war sets and now interested in finding Russian, Austro-Hungarian and Prussian postmarks on pre-1919 stamps used in current and previous Polish areas, as well as Polish overprinted editions from 1918-19.

Regards, Peter

Hello from another Australian :D

I've been collecting on and off as a hobby since childhood and have a good collection of Australian stamps. I have recently started collecting stamps from Japan, The Netherlands and space themed stamps. I tend to keep stamps that are visually appealing to me rather than for their rarity or value at the moment. I also love collecting and trading minisheets. Thanks for having me onboard :D

Many of us have the same dis-ease, so welcome to the club 8) And, might I add, there's nothing wrong with playing the field when it comes to stamp collecting...

I hope you enjoy looking around; learning the rules of the sandpit; and having fun :wink:

Greetings from Northern BC,
I'm 32 years old and have a rather large collection that worked it's way down to me from my grandfather. My primary interest at the moment is completing my Canada collection (post 1910) and figuring out the more effective way to display them. I've been lurking here for a while and have learned quite a bit in a short period of time.
Thanks!

The main activity is, of course, work. If work does not get in the way we are all going to have time for more than one hobby. :D

I am surprised (or rather shocked) that the second next member after me came from Northern BC too. :shock:

Good luck with your Canadian collection. I wonder if there are more stamp collectors in Prince George.

Hi all, I've been a member for a year but very busy so haven't posted much. And I guess that means I lost any privileges so I'd like to try again.

As I at least MEANT to state before, I've been collecting Israel (modern era) since my days as a youngster (I'm 59 now), but mostly in two chunks with a big gap between.

My childhood collecting was back in the '60s, and since 2001 I've taken a more serious interest. Nowadays, as my Israel collection completes, I'm interested in some new things, like Hawai'i Post locals (see my eventual attempted avatar) and Lord Howe Island Courier Post ZEMAIL issues.

I've worked in Israel (back in 2005 for a month), visited Hawai'i (three times, in 1984, 2002, and 2003), but never been to LHI (yet, although I do love their website :)). Hope to find out more info about my various interests here. Thanks for reading.

-- Mike

Hello, I'm Pat Moriarty, from Galway in Ireland.

I collect stamps purely for enjoyment. As such, I have no preferred country or region. The bulk of my collection comes from Ireland, Great Britain, USA, Australia and Germany. I am particularly interested in older issues (before about 1900), from all countries.

Introducing my self

Post by Cliff.Tayar »

My name is Cliff Tayar, I live in Stoke-On-Trent, England, and I am a retired accountant.

I have recently switched from collecting GB mint Edward VII shades to GB 1840 adhesive postal history, specialising in penny black entires.

As a fairly inexperienced line engraved collector I am aghast at the amazing number of faked penny blacks in existence, on and off cover, which are often very hard to identify, often accompanied by an expert certificate stating "genuine".

I have been caught out several times during my short collecting period, and it seems to me that the clever forgers have been allowed to get away with it by the trade, to the huge detriment of confidence in the philatelic buying public including myself.
