I have a correction to make to my last update and it also effects many post before that. It is a correction to the numbers in my postcard collection. I have just concluded an inventory of my postcards , country wise. Based on my list of countries and stamp issuing entities of 266, I now have a total of 210 in my collection leaving 56 left to collect. Still not bad. I guess the discrepancy came from the fact that I was using a number of different lists . When I compiled my new list of 266, I saw the error of my ways. So with 56 still to go, I will keep pegging away in my efforts to bring that number down.
