Introducing myself - from Odense

Hello everyone!

I just joined and would like to introduce myself. I am Danish, 47 years old at this time of writing, and working as an IT-consultant. I'm living in Odense and was born and raised in Aabenraa (Apenrade). So being a Slesviger, my collection is a Heimat-Sammlung of sorts.

My main interest is cancellations from the nowadays Schleswig-Holstein and Sønderjylland regions on Danish stamps, 1851-1864. This includes cancellations with numerals, ink and any of the many special post marks from this area.

However, I do also look into other periods, such as 1864 - 1920 and philately from the 1920 Plebiscit.

Over the years, I have found much valuable information in this forum, so I'm happy to join and looking forward to contribute to the discussions.

I read German quite well and can, though with some struggle, also write in German, but I prefer writing in English.



See you in the forums!

Hello Ole

nice to have you here - there are some collectors in the forum like you and we all would like to see the items of your collection. So go ahead and no worry - almost every member can read and/or understand English. :)

Hallo Ole
It's nice to welcome a younger philatelist to our forum again. ( I had my 70th birthday yesterday.)
viele Grüße

Lieber Dieter,
ganz bestimmt nicht. Ich bin in Wien und von den Wienern hat sich bisher keiner beschwert.

Hi all
Thank you very much for your kind welcome!
@Erwin: Also a Happy Birthday from Odense :-)
@Ralph: I would be happy to share my collection. I have scanned parts of it for insurance purposes, so I will soon put the scans into a zip file and post a link in the Slesvig-Holsten section.

Have a nice weekend, everyone!
Ole

Hi Ole,

I don't have discipline to check the thread in order to welcome new members. I'm from the other side of the pond :)

Welcome here, nice place to be.

Best regards

Welcome Ole!
From one who pretty much MUST write English to be understood! :) I've found this to be a wonderful forum and have felt welcomed. I think I've only been involved for a year?

I think the only thing I have problem with is the very large number of threads. It can be hard to figure out where to go to be on topic. But, that is a small problem. :)
Best,
Rob

Hi Sylvain, Rob and Laurent !

Thank you very much!

As the posts' date&time painfully clearly reveals, I haven't been too great a keeping myself updated here - I blame it on the very fine weather :-)

I fully agree with you. I think the level of expertise and dedication found on this forum is impressive. People say, that any topic can be interesting if one drills deeply enough into it. I find this very true, after reading threads on this here forum, which are off-topic wrt to my collection. I am sadly limited by both time and wealth :-)

Cheers Ole
