December 2019 Club Meeting notes

Rochdale Philatelic Society,10th. December 2019 Press Release


Our Christmas meeting began with covers from (R.M.S.) Mail Ships which visited Malta. The French Revolutions (1798) unique Calendar was then explained which had a separate name for each day of the year.

Self-adhesive New Zealand stamps followed, which were sold in rolls of 100 with advertisements between stamps. Examples were then displayed of the 2012 London Olympics commemorative coins which inadvertently started the resurgent growth in coin collecting. The meeting ended with a discussion on early Christmas cards and post marks.

Next month’s meeting will be our annual stamp collecting quiz New people are always welcome at our meetings which are held at the Rochdale Unitarian Church on the second Tuesday of each month at 7.30 pm, or alternatively telephone Neil on 01706 665698. or email
