Thank you so very much Mr. Alexander Pyshkin from Russia, for sending me all the colourful and gorgeous Russian matchboxes, matchbox cover and the labels. I was very surprised when I open the parcel. It was beautifully packed and every single items looking brand new and the subjects on covers were interesting. Alexander’s collections are very well maintained. Once I asked him ‘how long you have been collecting matchboxes’? He answered me ‘its more then 50 years’! Wow! This is really amazing, living matching matchbox with 5o years.
But I wish more then that. I want to collect matchboxes another 100 years. I just love all the little boxes. Alexander, Hans everink or striven smith they are all very great collector. Someday I want to be like them.
Thank you once again Alexander for your interest and contribution in my collection. I wish you all the best and I’ll be grateful to you. < p="">
