    Hello, just joined this forum and looking forward to what it has to offer. I've been collecting since November 1974 and have amassed a "collection" of about 30,000 different used stamps from 250+ stamp issuing territories going back as far 1861.

    My primary collecting interests are Canada, USA, Australia, Japan and Europe although the reality is I collect everything that has been postally used.

    Also a member of the Royal Philatelic Society of Canada

    Have completed over 200 successful trades in the last (almost) 40 years.

    30,000; wow! It seems a very round figure. Maybe you should count them again!
    Welcome to the forum.
    Look forward to seeing some of your stamps once you get the hang of things.

    Welcome to the forum.

    From your introduction, it sounds like you collect only postally used? And ~30,000 in those select 'few' countries (plus some added countries) suggests you have fairly complete collections? Or are you still looking for space fillers?

    If interested in any exchanges in those countries, let me know by PM. Am currently working towards 90,000 world-wide myself and have more than my fair share of duplicates available for trade. I am looking for W. Europe (all countries) from year 2000 on. My duplicates for trade end about year 2000; I quit buying kiloware at that time because my spares were getting out of hand and no viable outlet to trade for other stamps.
