Like some of you, I have the habit of mailing myself postcards from places I've visited, and of course mailing them with the local stamps that I manage to purchase. Hunting down a post office and/or finding one that sell stamps in a foreign country is often the most exciting part of the adventure.

I usually write down what I did at that place. So instead of a typical postcard people write to tell their love ones about their trip, my postcards to myself remind me what I did on the trip, and creating a piece of postal history at the same time.

So you can imagine my disappointment when I some time receive postcards without postmark! And worse yet, some time the postmark has missed the stamp altogether! (as I don't even have the option to mailing it again)

Should I mail these postcards again next time I visit? Or will I ruin their collector's value (the little that they will have) since I usually put the date on the postcards (not the date I dropped them in the mail, but the date of my mini travelogue). Worse yet, it may get lost in the mail, or somehow not get delivered!

You get what you get. I can't see any profit in re-mailing, with which there is always the risk of loss.
