Machin Day

Royal Philatelic Society, 41 Devonshire Place, London W1G 6JY (map) (Meeting Notes

This is an opportunity for you Machin collectors out there to bring along some gems from your collection to show to members, be they scarce varieties, errors, usages or whatever. Do you have a new theory to air with your peers? Do you have a problem with which you would like some help? The only restriction for the day is it must be “Machin” related material.

Machin collectors get writing up!

Stanley Gibbons Summer Philatelic Gathering

Stanley Gibbons, 399 Strand, London WC2R 0LX (map) (Meeting Notes

The format will be very similar to the Christmas event with refreshments laid on by Stanley Gibbons and members are invited to bring along a frame or two of material (any subject) to display (the frames being 12 sheets in 3 rows of 4).

Please bring something along, as it is a highlight of these evenings to see a mix of material from as many members as possible. If you are able to let me know, ahead of time, if you are bringing material that would help the evening run more smoothly but I will also be asking people on the night – so don’t worry about bringing material along at the last minute as the more the merrier.

You should receive an invitation card included as part of a GBPS mailing. Please RSVP (directly to Stanley Gibbons or Victoria Lajer rather than to me) in good time to ensure they cater for the right number of people. I would hate for the wine to run out before the end of the evening!
