Ciao. In tutti I forum di filatelia, dopo averti dato qualche consiglio, ti diranno lo stesso, scegli quello che ti piace. Non ha assolutamente senso chiedere la stessa cosa, vedi che le risposte sono le stesse.
Hello. In all philately forums, after giving you some advice, they will tell you the same, choose the one you like. It makes absolutely no sense to ask for the same thing, you see the answers are the same. Regards.
There was a time in my life when I collected U.S., Haiti, and dead countries. But I'd find my interests shifting.
Today, I consider myself a worldwide collector, but I focus on the aforementioned countries. But when I take an interest in a country, I pursue it within the context of my worldwide collection for as long as my interest in that country holds.
I also have some interest in areas of postal history and topicals, so there's that too. Just not enough time, money, or me to pursue all interests.
dbuss, "dead countries" are likely to have rare, expensive, or hard to find stamps, so, they assure a finite number of stamps, but not the ability to get them. If the goal is to frame the number of stamps, one can decide to collect a living country/entity, which is easy to get it's stamps, up to a certain year, like 2000, and then start collecting that country.
