Stamp Collecting

I've been collecting stamps for the last 37 years. My collection includes postal history, postmarks, marine mammals, Earth's physical features, rocks & minerals, gems, jewelry, WWF, parrots, puffins, and VW Beetles. I also collect stamps from the  Australia, Canada, Germany, Great Britain, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand and the US. If you have similar collecting interests, or if you have some items to trade, I'd love to hear from you. You can email me at

If you collect bullseye cancels(SOTN), please check out the BCCC website .
