I am a stamp collector.
Not a collector of expensive and rare stamps, the ones only crazy people
can afford and buy.
I only collect inexpensive, easy-to-find stamps, which have one thing
in common :
A stupid error in their design.
It started more than twenty years ago : I was watching an old envelope,
when suddenly my attention was caught by the stamp on it. I could not
believe my eyes : THE MAN ON THE STAMP HAD SIX FINGERS ON HIS LEFT HAND
! If you do not believe such stamps exist, look at the one it all
started with !
(Stamp issued by MONACO in 1947)
Since that day, it has become a bad habit : each time I look at a stamp,
I check it for errors. And in more than 20 years, I have found and collected
more than 1.500 stamps with at least one thing in common :
"the crazier the error, the more I like it"

am proud to present you some examples of
