Greetings

Hi all,

My name is Eddie. I live in Singapore and born in the Holland. I like to collect Dutch and Belgian stamps including their former colonies. Now I also started focussing on Chinese stamps. It helps that my wife is Chinese. But sometimes it's still difficult to find back the stamps in the catalogue.

Cheers, happy collecting, Eddie

Hello Eddie,

Welcome aboard.

If you are concentrating on a specific area of Chinese stamps you probably need a special catalogue for that subject. Most general catalogues are just that - general. They do not always cover the full range of overprints, varieties etc., which can be a bit frustrating. However, a Chinese wife is a good start - wish I'd thought of that.

Simon
