I am a general world-wide collector who has been collecting on and off for the last thirty years. Currently, I'm in the progress of turning what at best could be considered an accumulation into an actual collection. I work night shift and on my days off keep the same sleep schedule, so I can usually be found at 2 a.m. working on my collection. I prefer postally used issues, but will take whatever comes my way. I use only vintage hinges, which is getting more and more costly as the years go by.
