My name is Paul Scholtens and I live in Canberra, the capital city of Australia. During the Covid-19 pandemic I have been doing a lot of work on my collection. I am a 74 years old, social and general interest collector who collects stamps from all over the world. I like the information you can get from stamps about the culture, history and geography of countries.
I have no North Korea (DPRK) stamps in my collection. I would like to have in my collection used DPRK stamps from everyday use in North Korea (DPRK) from between, say, 1950 to 2020. I like my stamps to be easily removed from the cover or paper and I prefer that they are franked/cancelled/postally used, not torn or crumpled and have intact, square corners. A clear view of the country name, the picture or image and the denomination or money amount is important to me.
I would like to make contact with a member who would like to swap DPRK stamps with me in return for a similar number of Australian stamps, both pre-decimal currency (up to 1966) and contemporary stamps.
If you are interested you can e-mail me at: . (Editor: address as graphic, not text, to avoid spambots scraping the address!) I will reply to anyone who contacts me but would prefer to be swapping with just the one person. I am hoping to get, say, 100 stamps.
