Welcome on the homepage of Jos Wessels. Some parts are not completed yet, but I will regularly update the pages. Please remember that good websites are never finished.......
Click to see the ship being built! (190 k)
On this site, I have put together some subjects related to my hobby; collecting stamps and other postal items related to ships and shipping. As there are more than 20,000 stamps showing ships, I had to specialize. So I chose for transatlantic passenger lines, or The Blue Riband.
Another interesting subject to explore is shipping related meter stamps. There are no catalogues on this subject, so it is always a surprise what you find.
Next to that I have several postal items showing unidentified ships and I thought this would be a good place to ask other shiplovers to help me with the identification.
Finally, I try to keep an overview of the Dutch stamps showing ships up to date.
If you have any remarks or suggestions: E-mail me
