Iran (2015) alphabet

This rare item was sent by Wolfgang, who recently visited this country. He wrote me that sending covers from Iran was quite challenging because of limited availability of stamps and “open” postage rates. Thank you very much, Wolfgang, for your effort and sending this great cover!

Palestine (2015) Gaza

Gaza strip of Palestine represents one of the most isolated territory. It is because of long-time civil war in the region. It was big surprise when I have found 4 mails from Gaza in my mailbox one day :).

Gaza_regularHazem sent me perfect cover from city of Rafah. He used 2 stamps from the bird series issued by the Palestinian Authority in 1997. Thank you very much!

Gaza_registeredJinesh, experienced collector from India, arranged for me registered cover from Gaza via Philatelic bureau in the Gaza city. This cover is unique because stamps used on cover are the “Gaza issues”. Due to the political split between the Fatah-controlled West Bank and the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip in 2009, there exist two separate postal administrations: The Ministry of Telecom & Information Technology in Gaza, and Palestine Post of the Palestinian Ministry of Telecom & IT in Ramallah/al-Bireh. Both are issuing stamps for their respective areas, although Gaza issues were not allowed for international use between 2009-2014. These stamps were issued in 2014, left stamp commemorates kids killed in the conflict, the right one depicts old Gaza.

Thank you very much friend!

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 :)
