My Philatelic Blog

This blog is dedicated to the topic of Philately. That's stamp collecting for those of you not in the know. I've been participating in this great hobby since I was seven-years-old and it has provided me with many hours of intellectual enjoyment. If you are interesting in starting a collection, drop me a comment, and I'll be glad to help you out.

My blog will include a variety of stamp-related topics, but the areas where I focus most of my collecting interest include:
  • Polar Philately: This area includes stamps related to the North and South Poles and stamps issued from countries geographically in a polar region. My definition is a bit loose and includes the following countries and territories:
    • Australian Antarctic Territory (AAT)
    • British Antarctic Territory (BAT)
    • French Southern and Antarctic Territory (FSAT, TAAF)
    • Falkland Islands and Dependencies
    • Greenland
    • Iceland
    • Ross Dependency of New Zealand
    • South Georgia
    • Polar Bases from all countries
    • Stamps featuring polar topics
  • Poland: This area includes present-day Poland and related material.
    • POW camp issues
    • German Occupation Issues
    • Plate flaw varieties
    • Postal Stationery
    • 1919 Local posts
  • Czechoslovakia: I'm especially interested in the Hradcany castle issues.
  • Postally used Africa, especially British Africa
    • Kenya
    • Uganda
    • Tanzania
    • Botswana
    • Burundi
  • Hong Kong
  • Covers from exotic locations
