Two years ago, I posted that I had 10,898 stamps in my “World” collection…so I am pleased to say that the total at today’s date is 14,201.
I have never invested much effort in “World” stamps beyond a desire to have one stamp from every member of the United Nations. Only Georgia and South Sudan are missing from my albums.
The old Soviet “republic” will be easily obtained but South Sudan (the newest UN member) will be difficult. It is struggling with a civil war and an economy that is not working.
So I am pleased that I have derived a lot of fun from obtaining…via trade and bulk purchase over three thousand stamps in just two years.
The last bulk purchase was at an auction last month…a low profile “club” event. I am still sorting one country…Canada..
