I usually collect coins and banknotes, but when it comes to stamps with owls or postage stamps issued by fantastic, self-proclaimed, micronations and virtual states (Seborga, Lundy, Hutt River, Wirtland and others), then this is what I need.

**Moderator note

Very sorry kelliegirl33 but you have passed the eligibility period for the new member free gift. From Rule 1 in the first post of this thread:
Be a new Stampboards member, with at least 10 posts at the time of claiming their Gift, and have been a member for at least 7 days, and not more than 30 days, when making the request
However, the good news is that now that you have been a member for 2 months, you will be eligible for most other giveaways and swaps. Glad that you are enjoying the forum and hope to see you around for a long time! :D
