Hi,

I don't collect stamps sensu stricto but collect WW1 and associated postcards, some of which have stamps. A specific area of interest is postcards sent by German prisoners of war in Japan between 1914 and 1920.

Cheers, Simon

Hello and welcome to Stampboards new member

Your collecting interest is virtually indistinguishable from that of one serious philatelist friend of mine, and has significant overlap with the collecting interests of at least two others.

It's just a matter of generously inclusive definition, rather than narrowly exclusive definition, of terminology such as "philatelist" and "postal history" and "social philately".

Welcome to Stampboards Edwin!

Thanks RogerE for your warm welcomes.

I have been working on my US collection for my friends who have asked for some of my dups. I have them in many nooks and crannies and have not worked on them for years.

Mmmmm, now where did I put those? :lol: :lol:

Hi all.
My name is Ralph and I live in Miami Florida. I started collecting stamps when I was 10 years old until I got to college. I come from a humble family and could only buy a few stamps a month. 45 years later due to a medical condition of the immune system my doctor recommends that I try hobbies like stamp collecting. I got my old stamps back and started collecting again. And the truth that gave me a relaxation in my life. Here I am to learn more about this incredible world of stamps. I hope to be part of you as a family.

Welcome ralphvega = Ralph to Stampboards.

Sorry to hear of you health situation. This is a relaxing hobby most of the time.

I have a similar story so feel free to commiserate with those of us who missed the hobby for years.

Keep your tweezers handy and dig in. Search 👀 the threads you find of interest, ask your questions and add your comments and be careful of the rules. We are being watched, which is great . In that way I hope to stay out of trouble. :D :D

Hi guys,

Thank you very much for having me as a new member!

I collect stamps since I was a teenager and have been collecting ever since. Due to circumstances and different stages in life my activities have been down for some years between several periods but I never lost my interest.
My main focus always have been the Japanese occupation of South East Asia and secondly Straits Settlements and old Malay States. Approx 5 years ago I have been starting to collect also security markings and perfins on stamps of Straits Settlements, Old Malaya, Hong Kong, Siam, India and Ceylon and Postmarks of old post offices of old Malaya.
Since I like to have more contact with fellow collectors and to exchange information about topics of common interest if applicable I decided to join Stampboard.

Looking forward to be involved in the discussions on line and who knows I might even be able to provide some answers in the future on some of the topics.............. ;-)

As even local cannot see the games directly, except or a view outdoor and volunteers,
life goes on as normal for most of Tokyoites.

There are three public holidays that were shifted to coincidence with the games opening
ceremony days, creating long weekends.

However it is not a good times enjoying Tokyo's wet summer with a glass of beer,
as restaurants are banned to serve alcohol during State of Emergency (until end of August 2021).

I hope that Philanippon will not be postponed, as I have been waiting to it for 10 years.

Please find an example of "Powerplay" during the Japanese Occupation of Indonesia.

It has been one of the ways used to offend and intimidate the head of state of the occupied territory....

Nice to meet you on this forum and yes I do have stamps from Indonesia, Japanese Occupation and Hindia Belanda for exchange. By the way I am born I Semarang but at the moment living in Europe.

Please indicate where you are most interested in and it would be great if we could exchange stamps in the future.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Hi everyone.

I decided to use the name my wife most often calls me as my Avatar, she usually includes the word "stupid" as well so that puts me one step ahead for when Glen finds a reason to eventually call me a Bunny.

I am retired and living on the Gold Coast in Queensland Australia, I worked in the printing industry for nearly 50 years so may be of assistance with some questions about printing related errors that crop up here. My areas of collecting interest are Australian states and early Ceylon, and the usual buying at auction and selling online.

Cheers :)
