My name is Bernie Hopp.
My Side Hobby
I have been a serious life-long stamp collector!
I was born in Berlin, Germany and my collection from that country is probably my strongest.

I am
also a long time member of the American Philatelic Society (#78965), the Germany Philatelic Society (#5168) and the American Air Mail Society (#7324).

My specialized collecting interests include
Germany, Liechtenstein, France, Benelux, Austria, Italy, Zeppelin flights and Japan.

Retirement in 2008 gave me more time for my stamp hobby and I would like to expand my collection. It also gave me more time to travel. Picture above is family sailing in Oslo, Norway.
Since retiring, I have been selling stamp and coin collecting supplies on ebay and Amazon. Although I am not a stamp or coin dealer, I occassionally sell duplicates from my collection.

I trade under
user ID Mit_63 on ebay and Designer Stamp and Coin on Amazon. My items are also available at
