Swaps

Basically I’m ready to swap postcards with anyone in the world, but especially with collectors from the countries that I don’t have in my collection. I offer the following:

01 ROMANIAN POSTCARDS
02 ROMANIAN UNESCO WHS POSTCARDS (only for others UNESCO WHS)
03 ROMANIAN POSTCARDS for special swap
04 ROMANIAN POSTCARDS (1950-1989, uncirculated)
05 ROMANIAN MAXICARDS (1970-1980) for special swap
06 OTHER COUNTRIES POSTCARDS
07 SOVIET UNION postcards (1970-1980)
08 OTHER COUNTRIES OLD POSTCARDS (1900-1940) for special swap 
Romanian coins and banknotes in circulation for swap with postcards (only the small ones, because 100 RON = 23 EUR = 31.5 USD)
10 FRIDGE MAGNETS for swap with postcards


Behold how looks for me a PERFECT POSTCARD, which I enjoy when I receive (those who want to swap with me are asked to read and comply those from below):

doesn't come in envelope
was sent from the place it illustrates or at least from the country concerned (I don't see why I would receive a postcard from Bulgaria with pictures of Antarctica)
isnt multiview
is "official", ie was printed in a printing house, isn't handmade, isn't listed on your own printer
● it has as many stamps as possible, carefully glued, alongside one another, not one over the other
● it has a clear postmark (indeed, that doesn't depend on the sender, but in some places may make such request at the post office clerk)
● is specified place and date of dispatch (the postmark isn't always clear)
● the text and the address (if is possible) are handwritten
● on the back are written a few sentences about the picture, about the sender or about what he wants to write, without clichés or standard phrases (I must mention that I post on my blog also the back of the postcards, but if the text seems to me too personally or the sender simply doesn't want to appear what he wrote on the blog, will not appear)
● are written a few words in native language (and alphabet) of the sender   

The themes that I like them are extensive, but I DON'T WANT TO RECEIVE:
● funny pictures
● pets
● flowers, animals (if it isn’t a postcard with an national parc)
● ads postcards
● cartoons

PREFERENCES:
● UNESCO WHS (including tentative)
● people of the world and their lives
● special buildings (old or new)
