I have 39 stamps in total.

Some unique ones include a stamp from the González Videla Base in the Chilean Antarctic Territory, Stanley in the Falkland Islands, and Fin del Mundo in Argentina - the latter of which is more of a tourist trap type thing than an actual border crossing.

Land crossing-wise, a few weird ones are Debeli Brijeg in Montenegro, and three Croatian ones: Karasovići, Zaton Doli, and Kelk.

why is the Montenegro one weird? I have a few from Bozaj

I have two paid passport stamps, Liechtenstein and San Marino.

I have a cancelled exit visa from China (after I missed a flight...)

I have a few that no one else on DDF has but this already belongs to the countries list... I also have several from land crossing in Europe and the Americas

I have a stamp from Kosovo, when I was at the border the guard was not going to stamp my passport (I believe they have this policy like Israel so people don't avoid visiting their country) but I told him that I wanted it and that I was for Kosovo and he loved it :) this might've prevented me from travelling to Serbia (and -at least officially- a few more countries) but I wouldn't want to go back there anyway.

I wonder how many people have had to make new passports because their passport was full (I did). Maybe we add a poll?

I meant weird in more of the "unique" sense.

I have a few Slovakian and Hungarian stamps from walking across the border with Ukraine.

Enough stamps to count with my fingers alone.  :) No need for the toes.


 Better question has any of the border agents commented on the stamps you had in your passport?
 
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Yes, yes you will >:(.

I have 12 border crossings I don't have a stamp for (not counting Schengen and such), and Cuba is by far the most painful.

I finished a passport with 1 set of additional pages entirely. Oh and a Ukrainin Visa issued July 5, 2005 4 days after the requirement for Visas for US passport holder expired... ::) Somebody in the Ukrainian Consulate in Manhattan took my $160 and had a good dinner.
