Hi :)

I try to collect one nice cover from every country in the world, and I need YOUR HELP! Below you can browse through my collection, if you see your country is missing (or you can send me a better cover than the one I already have), please contact me :)

I prefer covers with WWF stamps, because this is my main (topical) collection. I also collect other WWF items, like local FDC / MC etc.


I can send you a nice cover from Belgium in return, or Belgian mint stamp(s) - as you prefer.
Have a look at my Delcampe store, all items that are for sale can be exchanged too.

Serbia WWF

I'm finally back again! :) I wanted to post some covers yesterday, but I did not do it at the end because I decided to spend my free time on watching football on tv! And it was not a waste of time, because the 2 Belgian teams playing in the UEFA cup both made it to the group phasse!:
  • Club Brugge 2 - Young Boys Bern (Swi) 0 (aggr. 4-2)
  • Standard 2 - Everton (Eng) 1 (aggr. 4-3)
Belgian football really needed some good results to get out of the misery a little bit, so it's nice that both teams could win their match!

But back to the covers now. I've received some really nice covers this week (including some new countries!!), so I can't wait to share them with you. First one to show is one sent to me by Dusan from Serbia:



Dusan used two stamps on the cover. The one on the left was issued in 2007 and commemorates the European table tennis games. When I studied at university, I played some table tennis with my best friend every week, so this stamp really reminds me to 'the good old days'. :)

The stamp on the right was also issued in 2007 and pictures Amelia Erheart, a noted American aviation pioneer and author. She was the first woman to receive the Distinguished Flying Cross, which she was awarded as the first aviatrix to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She set many other records, wrote best-selling books about her flying experiences, and was instrumental in the formation of The Ninety-Nines, an organization for female pilots. During an attempt to make a circumnavigationel flight of the globe in 1937, Earhart disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean near Howland Island.

Dusan included 2 very nice local first day covers of the Serbian 2007 WWF issue (I talked about these birds in my previous Serbia / WWF post). Here is a picture of the FDC's:



Thanks a lot for these items, Dusan! I hope you can also get me the 2004 issue FDC's one day! :)
