This is a blog of my personal stamps and covers collection. I am an avid collector of postage stamps, miniature sheets, FDCs and covers addressed to me from across the world, an accumulator and hoarder of stamps. It is my attempt here to show you all of my collection in the posts that I'll add and update regularly. I hope to add more to the collection in the process, interact with you other collectors out there and share thoughts and information about anything and everything related.

Cover - South Africa
I received this nice treat from Benjamin. A lovely cover from Bloemfontein, South Africa with three FDCs from SWA, Transkei and Venda. Thanks Benjamin. Unfortunately the cover was damaged in transit. See the cancel of the postal authority indicating it was received torn. Always wonder if there's a way to ensure these things don't happen to covers being sent by post.
Here's the one from South West Africa. SWA is the modern day Republic of Namibia.
