About the site


This blog is about postcards, covers and stamps received. I also included some of my favorite stamps in my collection.

Feel free to contact me at jpstampcollector@gmail.com if you want a cover or mint stamps exchange.
I am interested in birds / marine life / commercial aviation / military / religious theme (like Popes, Saints and Churches) / famous historical events from your country / Joint stamp issues with Philippines. Year of the Rabbit (2011), Year of the Tiger (2010), Year of the Dragon (2012)

For covers, please limit envelope size to 220mm x 140mm

My birthday is on December 31. I'd really appreciate if you can send me a letter on that day with a birthday greeting.

I am currently working in an IT company, but I can still manage to find some time to go to post office to send postcards and letters.
I like commercial aviation and I collect die cast airplanes. I also love to do travel photography and interact with different people and learn their culture.

Feel free to browse this blog site and I would appreciate if you leave any comments / remarks.

#9 Cover and Stamps - South Korea (2010-09-15)

My friend from Korea sent me 2 covers during the first day of issue of The 60th Anniversary of Women's Service in the Armed Forces Commemorative Postcard (2010-09-06).

The first cover has 2 stamps, the stamp on the left commemorates The 60th Anniversary of the Republic of Korea Marine Corps, which was issued last 2009, while the stamp on the right commemorates the  30th Anniversary of the Establishment of the ROK Women's Army Corps, which was issued on 1980. The second stamp used is related to the special cancellation used.

Inside are stamps with their brochures.



The second cover was sent to me in time with the Cover round robin event in My Philately.
The stamps used on this cover are part of the Korean Beauty Series (5th issue) issued last 1995.

First stamp : The Lofty Gate of the Traditional Yangban Residence
