Hi Urulókë -
Does anyone ever have a compleat collection? In my case, I have (as of this date) catalogued 328 calendars (including the various variants.) And I have (with this last one) 300 of them. A nice round number in any case. I have little hope of collecting some of them (the Russian "Tretya Thema", for instance.) But many are commercial issues that are hard to find for whatever reason (some of the early Minotauro issues from Spain and some of the issues from Poland.) But thanks to your support, I have crossed off at least one "goodie." And because of that one, I heard from its creator (John Pivovarnick, who has recently been in contact with Tom Logan.) So hope springs eternal that its mate will sometime come along.
If you really want to know which ones I need, just check out the entries on my website. Those with no letter following the rarity rating are still to be found. A letter designates its state (x = opened, m = mint, s = signed.)
Speaking of the latter, your package arrived safely and my daughter took her copy home with her last weekend. Thanks! Thoroughly enjoyed bringing that one back home with the signatures on it!
Hope this finds you and yours well.
