Philately are one of my favourite hobby. I start to collecting stamps since 10 years old. After 25 years later, i realized that i have to do more than just collecting. I found something new and more interesting, doing little research about letter and postcard. In phitely terms, these area are Postal History. These is a deeper scoope. We have to observe a philately artefact, – i use to call it for postal history item – from the route, rate and cancellation. To support our observation, we have to add more information about social aspect from the artefact coming from. Here is some of my artefact, wish you enjoy to read these. I am very gratefull if you give me some opinion or add some information which is i missed. Thank you and please enjoy.. Lukman Hqeem
