Hello everyone.
I'm probably a fish out of water here. I don't collect stamps - per se - only postmarkings from townships in Victoria. I'm particularly interested in post offices which opened between 1836 and 1906.
While researching the engravers of the post office 'furniture' I've discovered a whole 'nother world which seemingly very few people have dived into.
I'm hoping to connect with others who are also interested in marcophily.

Hi Mcgooley, and
Your collecting sphere happens to coincide with one of my current eBay listings, a 'Yackandandah, Vic' postmark on a common Victoria 1d stamp!
Regards
DavidR

mcgooley,

Collecting for the enjoyment of collecting, whatever that might be, is the name of the game. Don't hesitate to ask questions especially if you need basic information and especially more advanced sources of information for any possible topic. You should be able to find folks on this board a little further along on their collecting journey glad to share experiences. Russ

Welcome Mcgooley.

Happy to have you here!

I'm a marcophile myself so I'm sure we'll have something to talk about!
