Perfin Study Group drops five-year publication delay

The Perfin Study Group has dropped the five-year delay between the publication of its newsletter, The BNA Perforator, and began posting it on the British North America Philatelic Society (BNAPS) website.

Effective this year, the group – one of about 20 study groups affiliated with BNAPS – will post its newsletters online immediately upon publication. All 21 newsletters published between 2017 and 2023, as well as dozens of other issues dating back to 1980, are now available online.

The group also publishes a regularly updated Canadian perfin handbook, Canadian Stamps with Perforated Initials, which is available online.
