Dieter's Stamp Page
Please do NOT offer in exchange: European countries, stamp countries like North Korea, Ecuatorial Guinea and so on and recent stamps or sheets after end of the year 1999 Ė I stopped most of my foreign collections at this time. If you want to have anything of my offers, please send me a mail:
stamp collector, I surf the web looking for stamp collecting sites. To my
disappointment, I have observed, most of the stamp collecting sites on the web
are commercial sites. Of course, I have seen a few home pages that attempt to
discuss stamp collecting without talking about the dollar value of stamps, but
then again those home pages generally have not much to say about stamps. Their
emphasis is on the unusual background music, scrolling text, animated
GIF's, lot of banners etc. on their pages. I, therefore, decided to put together a site by
myself which will attempt to discuss stamp collecting purely as a hobby
without the distraction of animated GIF's, banners and background music. This being my
first attempt to publish a website in English, I know it will be far from
perfect. But, at least, it is a beginning. I shall try to improve on it in the
future. Your words of encouragement and constructive criticism will help. Thank
you in advance for your suggestions.
I am a European stamps
collector. I do not concentrate on any particular country or any particular
theme. I collect stamps of all European countries. I have thousands upon
thousands of stamps. I collect new and used stamps. But the last 20 years my
missing lists from nearly all countries are enormous. So I try to get these
stamps by exchanging because I have lots of German stamps.
What I can offer
At my German pages you can
find many "Have-Lists" from the stamps I have twice or more - but this
stamps are listed by numbers of the German "Michel-Katalog". If you do
not have this catalogue you can not use this lists. Then during the years it
became too much work to actualize this lists and most of them are not up to date. So I start my English
activities with the stamps of BERLIN from which I have really more than enough.
I made a catalogue where you can look for the number of each stamp. I can offer
all stamps from Berlin from 1954 to 1990 and most of the older ones too as **
and O. (** = mint never hinged, * = mint, O
= used). Then I can offer too nearly all other German stamps from old to new.
New German ** stamps in EURO value I will exchange only to mint recent stamps from
other countries in face-value. If you have a Michel-Katalog you can navigate at my
German lists. Some words translated: Fehlliste = Missing-list, Tauschliste =

What I try to get
When I started my internet activities I had a lot of empty places in my GB collection. Now - thanks to all collectors who helped me - my collection is nearly complete until the year 2000. Since I collect nearly the whole world there are a lot of empty places in most countries! If you live in an "exotic" country I will start a collection from your country as I did with New Zealand or Israel when I found friends there. Some years ago I started a collection USA and will soon write a missing list with numbers from SCOTT catalogue but it is not so easy to translate the MICHEL numbers to SCOTT numbers, it needs a lot of time! With exotic countries I will too exchange 100/100, 500/500 or any other number of different stamps you want.
I am a collector and not a dealer so will not buy or sell stamps!!!
How to separate self-adhesive US stamps, a very helpful video from R. Runciman, New Zealand
I am on the look-out for collectors in for me "exotic" countries, for example South America, Asia, Africa and so on but not in Europe. From European countries I have already good collections, too from USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand that I will exchange only by catalogue numbers. Here the link to my lists with MICHEL numbers
If you use SCOTT catalogue I can translate the numbers of your missing lists to my MICHEL numbers because I got a SCOTT world catalogue (edition 2005) on CDs from a friend in Brasil - thanks a lot!!!
All other countries I prefer exchange 100/100 or if you want 500/500 different ones. I can offer all quality levels:
Postal used stamps mixed
Only commemoratives used
Used commemoratives - only complete issues
Stamps from one decade Berlin / Bund / GDR / Reich
Stamps from occupation Zones 1945 used / mint
Stamps only with high quality cancellation, if you want CTO
MNH commemoratives - only complete issues
Mint complete year issues (for example Berlin 1979)
I can too offer stamps for your topic (as example some German sports blocks):
I only want to exchange used - used or mint - mint. German MNH stamps I will offer only until year 2000. Newer ones only exchange by front value.
For my collection I use the German MICHEL catalogue. So if you have special wishes in German stamps please look at my
to find the number of the stamp you want to have.
