The new season of The Royal Philatelic Society London opened September 15 in traditional fashion with a display from The Royal Philatelic Collection, shown by gracious permission of Her Majesty The Queen.
The countries chosen this time were British Guiana and Barbados. As Michael Sefi, Keeper of The Royal Philatelic Collection, explained: “there is very little, if anything, of postal history significance.” However, for those who enjoy looking at stamps, the Collection has much to appeal, with essays, die proofs, mint and used stamps, with examples on covers, printings and varieties.
