7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

You are invited to a Stamp Talks Zoom webinar.

When: August 8, 2022 07:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

Topic: Discovering the Stamps of France

Speaker George Pepall

I couldn’t avoid becoming a stamp collector if I’d wanted to since both my parents had substantial collections. My father collected British Commonwealth and Canada, and my mother collected the world. They had the benefits of fellow collectors at school in an informal club.

My earliest memory of having my own stamps is of 100s of the 3c blue US Jefferson prexie stamp, which I soaked and hinged in a calender book with the help of Lepages glue!

In more recent years I’ve participated in local and regional exhibiting and judging, including US classics and KGVI used stamps, which my father directed me to. Good used BC is more difficult to complete, but avoids gum problems.

When it comes to the question of specializing or staying open to new interests, I lean toward the latter, always with a bias towards engraved stamps.

I’ve served as an RPSC director for 21 years, eight as president.
