Hi everyone!

I am very happy to find and join this forum!
I am 65 living in Chicago USA.
I inherited stamp collection from my grate grand father who started collecting stamps since 1900. He was not wealthy, hence did not spend too much money on stamps but just grab whatever he cold from all over the world. China was isolated from the rest of the world since 1949, and he could only add Chinese stamps and some CCCP/East-Europe ones from then on. He left his collection to me when he passed away in 1974. I kept the collection without doing much and brought them with me when I immigrated to the USA some 30+ years ago.
I added a few stamps (US and rest of the world) throughout the years, just for fun, no specific topic.
I will retire in a couple of years. I hope one day I can have at least one stamp from every country/region in the world (I have about 189 so far, including some country/region no longer exist or stopped issuing stamps).

Welcome.

Do you have a list of those stamp issuing entities for which you still need an example?

@Calstamp: Some example would be Channel Islands, Isle of Man,
Faeroe Islands (I do not know if they issue stamps or not).
I also missing North Macedonia and Benin (and several more). Thanks for asking.

Just for fan,

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.

I count almost 1,300 stamp-issuing authorities since 1840, so you're a little about 15% of the way to your goal.

Hello.
Welcome.
The ASFE theme -A Stamps From Everywhere is very popular. For some, a stamp from each country is enough, others go much further, as this Danish collector.
Regards.
