GEOGRAPHIC PHILATELY | Covers & Postcards Worldwide

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

USA (2015) Missouri

USA (2015) Maine

Recently, I received 2 very nice covers from Maine in US. For a long time, it was one of few missing US states in my collection.

US_MaineFirst cover arrived from the LCC member Mr. Robert Stuart, who used stamps commemorating Martin Ramírez. It was posted in Rockland, ME on May 1.

US_Maine_flag-2015Second cover was posted in Augusta, ME (the capital of Maine) and was perfectly cancelled by unknown postmaster on May 4. Cover was prepared by myself and I used stamp from the series “Flags of our Nation”.

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 :-).
.
MY WISHLIST - MISSING COUNTRIES
I will deeply appreciate if you can help me with cover from any of worldwide country. I miss 12 countries (18 distinct territories) in my collection, but I will appreciate any nice cover from any country sent to my address :)
