This is my blog about stamps and everything I collect about chickens,cards, stamps, coins, postcards,banknotes, phonecards a.s.o. If you like to exchange stamps or postcards, mail me. I collect used stamps from Denmark, Sweden,The Netherlands, USA till 1986,personalized stamps from all over the globe,and many more. If you need Dutch personalized stamps, mail me.
Nice old card I got from Ebay. It is a card from Bandra, the St.Josephs Convent which show us some chickens and the people who lives there.
Show you a nice stamp from Poland. Who is on top of this flighing cock? I don't have any idea. Do have a few of these chicken-story stamps. Show you one before I think from Ukraine.The fellow has a big moustache and it must be a little one, or a very big chicken of course.
Will show some more next week.
Have a nice week and if you collect chickentings: http://groups.msn.com/Chickenstampsandcollectables
No stamps or chickenthings today. If you don't agree let me know it will not happen every day....(week). On my trip to find Rembrandt booklets I saw also that the posoffice has special coins of € 5 . Show you a packed one and also the backside. The occasion is the 400 birthday of painter Rembrandt van R(h)ijn .Nice coin, you can pay in the whole Netherlands with it. A bit strange since the currency is Euro.. If you want to know more : www.herdenkingsmunt.nl and you need a translating program I suppose..
Anybody interested in such a coin?? Mail me and maybe we can work something out..
If you have coins,banknotes of phonecards with chickens...................you know what you can do..
So I have this old letter from Stoneham. Will show it later, blogger is not working the way I want.
The letter is still inside the envelop. Its from 14-6-1883, the postmark a day later. Where does Stoneham lies? See somthing like ..ss. Mass Or Miss? Strange you can read the letter from some one who is not with us anymore. The letter is to a Mrs Martha Sale I think. From A Sarah E.Chase. On the otherside of the letter is an other address : Deerfield Center. Must be a big place. The letter is a repeat of an earlier request if she can stay there for some time. Holiday ? We will never know.
