There are Countries difficult to collect... Hungary is not one of them !!.. The abundance of resources of all the ages of Hungarian Philately, is notorious.. When I first began to be an active collector (that is to say, a buyer..!!), great and cheap lots were my main goal... In the group of those that were always available , Hungarian stamps were on the "lead".. Personally , the target I choose after 2 or 3 years were the 30's, 40's and 50's.. not only with Hungarian stamps, but with all countries.. perhaps this decision was influenced by my idea that those were interesting days to live...
So I can say that if there is anything never lacking at my home , Hungarian stamps to classify are for certain one of them..; this abundance , however don't reflect the quality and the variety of these stamps.. not always the most common is the worst...! It is indeed a great Philately and offers to the collector every kind of challenges and opportunities... issues with different kinds of paper and watermarks, great variety of overprints, surcharges, etc,  topics of all kinds , beautiful designs , etc...
