Plate block swap

I received a mailing from a fellow plate block collector in Australia today. I believe I first started corresponding with this person from a classified ad he placed in the SIP, but I could have found his e-mail address somewhere else. Anyway, he had 33 Shekel plateblocks from my want list, and I had a handful of seven species and zodiac plateblocks from his, so we did a straight swap. Much better than having to purchase these on E-bay, or from a dealer. There are so few dealers I have found that actually carry what I am looking for that the few who do have the items charge outrageous prices. Anyone else interested in trading? I still have more plate block duplicates to trade, as well as a ton of special cancels and post office openings.

Hi Adam,
I follow your blog with great interest and learned a lot more about collecting Israel stamps.
I am looking for special cancellations and post office openings from 2001,2002, 2003 and 2005. I have tried several dealers but didn'r succeed in finding them.
May be you can help me??
