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, where I am much more active. In 2016 I started to study history and mathematics at the university to become a teacher one day. 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 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. Also I prefer normal sized cards (10x15cm).
View Cards make me happy, but these would make me even happier:
- 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.
- One of my favourite themes to collect on stamps are childhood heroes. If you have such a stamp please send it to me. If you have a matching card for it it is even greater.
- Giant Pandas in Zoos
- European Heritage Label Sites or other cards connected to European history
- UNESCO World Heritage
- Star Wars cards (or stamps!), but please only canonic stuff. No old comics or books. ;)
- Eurovision Song Contest
- World Fair's
- Train Stations
- Futuristic Architecture
- Places connected to Mysteries like Alien Landings or Ghost Stories
- My Favourites
- From Finland I really like to get Moomin cards and stamps.
- From Japan I really like to get cards about Pokemon or Studio Ghibli. A dream would be to get a Pokemon card with a matching stamp!
- If you could use one of these stamps I would be thrilled: Muppets (US), Pokemon (JP), Roald Dahl (GB), Simpsons (US), Smurfs (BE), Winnie the Pooh (GB). For some of them I am already looking for for years. :D
- recent stamps I am looking for: Covid-19 (CN, UA 2020), Friedrich Engels (RU 2020), Justice League (PT 2020), Mars Mission (CN 2020)
I have four blogs about postcards (link above), my stamp collection, history and childhood heroes on stamps and a philatelic Instagram account (@dustin15_collections). On my postcard blog you can also find a longer wishlist and my collection. :)
Thanks for reading my long profile and Happy Postcrossing!
