my name is Dustin and I come from Germany. My passion for stamps began in 2011 when my grandma gave me a small album with some old stamps. I really liked to look at them and soon I wanted to enlarge my "collection". In January 2012 I went to the philatelic shop in my home town for the first time and since then I am addicted. In 2012 I also began with Postcrossing. Shortly after I joined the Postcrossing Forum. I am much more active there and visit it usually everyday. In 2016 I started to study history and mathematics at the university to become a teacher one day and it keeps me really busy.
If you want to make me happy with a card please send me a view card of an interesting, famous or historic place or building sent with nice, matching or even extraordinary stamps from your country. The last is especially important for me. I hate cards that are not sent from country of origin. Especially if you are from a "rare" country a view card would be my favourite choice.
Some of my more special interests (both for postcards/stamps and in general) include:
- I love museums! If you have a card of a big museum in your country or of your favourite museum I would be happy to see it.
- I love stamps! Old, new, any nice one will be really appreciated. Below you can find a small wishlist. Maybe you have one of them? :)
- Currently I am really in the mood for Star Wars. Star Wars cards (or stamps!) are thus very welcome, but please only canonic stuff. No old comics or books. ;)
- History (especially European), Giant Pandas in Zoos, World Fair's, Train Stations, Futuristic Architecture, UNESCO World Heritage, Famous Animals from your Country, European Heritage Label, Eurovision Song Contest, Places connected to Mysteries like Alien Landings or Ghost Stories, my Favourites
- from Finland: Moomins
- from Japan: Pokemon and Studio Ghibli
One of my favourite themes to collect on stamps are childhood heroes and I have a special love for these stamps sent on matching cards. I am especially looking for these stamps used on matching cards: Asterix (France 2019), Bugs Bunny (USA 1997), Marvel (UK 2019), Muppets (USA 2005), Pokemon (Japan 2005), Scooby-Doo (USA 2018), Simpsons (USA 2009), Smurfs (Belgium 2008), Super Mario (Japan 2017).
If you would help me with one of these you would really make my day!
I have a postcard blog (link above) and a related Instagram account (@dustin15_collections). On my blog you can also find a longer wishlist and my collection. :)
If you have one of these stamps I would be really happy if you would use it:
2005: Muppets (US), Olympic Mascots (China), Pokemon (JP)
