||Dieter Wendtner 018
Dear collector friends, my name is Dieter Wendtner and I am one of the very few collectors from Austria. My passion for phillumeny began in the early 70s and has never left me since then.
I am only interested in collecting whole matchboxes and I don't collect any labels (I just keep old ones if I happen to get them) and no opened boxes. But otherwise, I collect everything about matches. By the way, I usually take the matches out of the boxes.
My main areas of collection are primarily the topic of "matches from Austria" (including advertisements, invoices, publications, etc.), wooden boxes, flip-tops, special formats (the more unusual, the better), collection boxes (e.g. Russian, Chinese, Swedish, etc.). But as already mentioned - I collect everything about phillumeny that I do not have yet.
