Stamps Collections

The Queens Collections
My first blog. I'm creating this blog in honoring my late grandfather on their effort collecting stamps around the globe since 1920's. I believed some of the stamps are extremely rare and got some value. My late grandmother telling me bedtime story every night about the peoples, about hopes and journey. One of the stories is about how patient my late grandfather was collecting stamps from around the world by writing letter with pen pals.

I have never met my grandfather. Only heard a few stories from my mother. He is a teacher, very strict with his children. My aunts and uncles hardly speak directly with him. He always spent most of the time after works in his study room. I remembered my mum had told me, that room full with books, journals, old medals and cups. On the left side of the room, there is one old desk. On that desk he put old typewriter. Below the desk there is one box full of letters posted from his pen pals from all over the world.

That is how he managed to collect hundreds of stamps. Writing letters, communicate with pen pals. From country that not only understand English but even from Argentina, China, Czechoslovakia, Deutches, Korea, India and even from Burma. Until now, it is still in mystery how he communicates with all of his pen pals.

Searching through Wikipedia, CCCP also known as The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics or USSR. And one of weirdo stamps  I found from country named “Republika Popullore E Shqiperise” (hardly to spell even to pronounce)
