France (2015) 100th Anniversary Belgian exile Government

FR_stephane_Gouvernement-BelgeStéphanes sent me FDC commemorating the Belgian Exile governement during WWI.

According the Wikipedia, during World War I, Sainte-Adresse was the administrative capital of Belgium. The Belgian government in exile was installed from October 1914 to November 1918 in the Dufayel building, named after the businessman who had built it in 1911. It had at its disposal a post office using Belgian postage stamps.

Thank you very much for very interesting cover!

France (2014) Council of Europe

This cover was received more than a year ago. I decided to add this cover in order to have my geographical collection complete :).

Council-of-Europe

Council of Europe was founded in 1949 as an advisory international organisation promoting co-operation between European countries in the areas of legal standards, human rights, democratic development, the rule of law and cultural co-operation. Nowadays it has 47 member states and it is independent from the European Union. There is a post office in the Council of Europe building in Strasbourg with its own postmark. The organisation has also own special issues of French stamps inscribed with the “Conseil de l’Europe”, but all French stamps are valid at CoE post office.

This cover was received with kind help of the postmaster of the Council of Europe post office. Thank you very much!

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.

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 :)
