Covers and postcards sent to my address from different countries of the world.

Maldives (2013) turtles

Maldives_FlorianI was trying to obtain cover from Maldives already for a long time. I was not successful with swaps, RRs or even with philatelic bureau. I finally received my first cover from Maldives a month ago.  What a surprise was, when I have found my second cover from this attractive country in my mailbox :). It was arranged by Florian, a cover collector from Austria. Thank you very much!

Spain / Malta (2013) missent cover without Spanish postmark


My relative spent a holiday on Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, Spain. She sent me two covers with printed logo of Gran Canaria and Canary Islands. The latter one was received earlier in 2013. This second cover was delayed, because it was missent to Malta. It hasn’t received any postmark in Spain and it apparently arrived to Malta with clean Spanish stamp. The Maltese clerk thus covered the Spanish stamp with sticker and I finally received “blank” cover “without” stamp from Spain but with Maltese postmark :). It is quite a curiosity :).

Year 2013 brought one another unique date, which looks interesting on some postmarks. I was not “hunting” for covers with this date, but I am glad I received some. These are nice additions to my collections. I want to thank for all received 11-12-13 covers :).

Christmas 2013

It is hard to believe, but Czech Post was not issuing any Christmas stamp in 2013. We have stamps commemorating unknown or even controversial persons or events, but missing Easter and Christmas. Weird :). I hope that Czech Post will do better in 2014 :).

Anyway, I am very thankful to all of you who sent me Christmas 2013 cover, although I was not able to send the same in return. Thank you!

LCC covers received in 2013

London Cover Club (LCC) is another link to receiving nice covers. When compared to other circuit clubs, I think the quality of received cover is the highest in this club. Here are some covers received via LCC exchange.

COVERS that are against the LCC rules (missing or machine cancellation or double cancellation) and sending covers like these ones should be avoided. However, I must say I quite like them :).LCC_MT_Jane-Vella UCC_LCC_US_Dorothy-Smith LCC_IT_Constantino-Beltramo ES_lcc_pere-magrane LCC_GR_George-Robakis

Hi, my name is Radim, born in a year of Dragon, interested in Botany and loving flags on stamps :). I am collecting nice covers and postcards thaít are addressed to me. And because I love travelling and it is impossible to see all the nice places of the world, I therefore wish to receive covers or/and postcards from as many countries as possible. Just to "touch" the distant places virtually :-).
I will deeply appreciate if you can help me with cover from any of worldwide country. I miss 10(11) countries (+ 2-3 distinct territories) in my collection, but I will appreciate any nice cover from any country sent to my address :)
