Regional Philatelic Directory
Our September, 2013 Newsletter (and many back issues) are available on-line. September's issue includes Part 2 of Virgil Soh's interesting article about the "Falkland Islands stamp war," an article about new technology that can identify forgeries, and an item about a Canadian stamp that you probably can't afford!
The BC Philatelic Society is affiliated with the Royal Philatelic Society of Canada, the American Philatelic Society, and the Northwest Federation of Stamp Clubs. We meet at 7:30 p.m., on most Wednesday evenings, at West Burnaby United Church, 6050 Sussex Avenue, Burnaby, BC. We welcome visitors!
PLEASE EMAIL, send SNAIL MAIL, or TELEPHONE 778-773-0907
Our June Newsletter along with many back issues, club news, and useful and interesting articles, including "What to do when you inherit stamps," by President Bob Ingraham.
Why do we collect stamps? Why should you collect stamps? Novelist Ayn Rand (The Fountainhead, Atlas Shrugged) was a stamp collector who wrote what is perhaps the best-ever explication of what it is that draws us to what most people consider a curious hobby for children. Read "Why I like stamp collecting".
A notable addition: A downloadable copy of Canadian Philately — An Outline: A Summary of Collecting Areas and Interests of British North America Collectors, a useful publication of BNAPS (British North America Philatelic Society). You'll find the links to the booklet on our GOOD STUFF! web page.
The BC Philatelic Society enjoys associations with philatelic organizations in Canada and the United States. See our list of useful links.
The BC Philatelic Society enjoys the membership of several
stamp dealers in Metro Vancouver and Victoria, three of whom make this web site
possible through advertising. Their ads include e-mail and web-site links. Please support them.
