Pierre wrote me some days ago that you sent me a message here!! Ilook
over RSCD each morning whan I am at hone, but I don't read all therads,
only those I had a interess ...
Yes I continue to collect Scandinavian countries, but is is not very
easy to find new issues used, and friends that alos continue to collect
French used stamps! I search a friend in Finland for 6 years now, and
for other countries I have friends but they write every 6 to 8 month
and it is so not easy to get stamps!!
Fot older stamps, no problem, I find it by some friends, on Delcampe
and at most stamp markets day around LYON!!
I have Facit 2013 and a national catalog for each country I collect;
for DK I have an AFA 2008, but not the special catalog, I think it is
in Danish language with no English (or German) traslation, and I have
difficulty to understand your language.
So I thank you for your offer but to day I don't need help to day!
But if you meet friends that search to find a friend in France to swap
stamps (used or mint, but I search only used) you can give my E-Mail!!
