Petersfield Stamp Auction

Petersfield & District Philatelic Society stamp head

Petersfield & District Philatelic Society (PDPS) is holding a stamp auction in the Community Centre on Saturday, October 28th. Stamps? Not just “stamps” – Philately includes more than just those tiny bits of paper with crinkly edges. Our auction includes postal history, (such as the Boer War, 1st World War Naval battles, Isle of Wight, Scotland), local ephemera (such as theatre and town events, a Lord Tennyson letter), envelopes & covers, postcards, literature, equipment, and – yes, lots of stamps from around the world (Aden to Wallis and Fortuna – but no Zanzibar or Zululand this time).

Why not drop in? There is no entrance fee, no obligation to buy anything, and plenty of time to potter around and look at the exhibits, as viewing time is from 10am to 1.30pm. If you find something of interest, you can stay for the auction (2-5pm) or put in bids that the auctioneers will handle on your behalf. And there are no buyer’s fees either!

Summary... Auction or not: Are you interested in Stamps and Postal History? Are you a would-be collector who would like support? Would you like to talk and share ideas with other collectors? Would you like to see displays by our members and visitors? PDPS can offer you friendship in a group of varying experience, from beginner to expert, regular monthly meetings, a quarterly newsletter, access to our stamp packets for those elusive items, and access to albums and catalogues at discounted prices. Why not come and meet us on the first Monday of any month at 7.30pm in the Petersfield Community Centre. For more information ring David on 02392 591413 Or email: Or visit our website:
