Welcome to Customs Collector!


Tuesday, 23 August 2022

Well, would you believe that www.customscollector.com has been on the internet for 20 years! Amazing! I figure that this means it's time for an update to the website. So, without further ado, please enjoy some new additions to the different insignia from Customs administrations around the world! I will progressively roll out more images in the days and weeks ahead. If you would like to provide images, please email me.

Another area of interest of mine, aside from Customs Insignia, has always been identifying new and innovative means of enforcing border related legislation. To that end, I had the priveledge of being published in the World Customs Journal with an innovation idea related to the use of geographic information systems to identify border related criminal activity.
