My Philatelic Interests:

A long time collector of China, particularly Treaty Ports, Manchukuo , revenues and Japanese Post Offices in China.  My preference is postal history, but I will collect anything relating to these. Have also recently developed an interest in the early issues (pre 1900) of Mauritius and Cuba. Australian States is another area I wish to pursue in the future.  MSW has now given me two more directions :  Israel and US Precancels , if only time will permit.  Where it is applicable , I also have an interest in wartime censored covers on all of the above. I can now add the Confederate States of America to my long list , a fascinating but specialised area.

Stamps I Really Want:

Fine used copy of 1934 Manchukuo Pu Yi 15f. Recently acquired this stamp on eBay , but had to pay top dollar. It was well worth the expense though , there are not too many for sale.

Some will remember we had such a group at My Philately. It actually grew in size and number of members and posts quite rapidly. People liked it maybe because we were able to have a global scope like our philatelic forefathers thanks to the narrow theme. Let us try do it here at MSW. All number ones…
