Young collectors visit RPSL

Young collectors from across the world, including the U.K., U.S., Belgium, France, Germany, India, the Netherlands, Norway and Switzerland, were invited to London for the week of Autumn Stampex this September.

The initiative, which was held under the auspices of The Royal Philatelic Society London (RPSL) and under the patronage of its President Patrick Maselis, was organized by John Davies.

During their stay, the 15 young collectors visited RPSL headquarters to see how its expert committee functions and view the Museum of Postal History. Also visited was The Postal Museum, exploring the exhibition, conservation and digitization studios as well as riding on the “mail rail” experience. At the British Library, the group also visited the philatelic collections and conservation studio.

Each of the students was also invited to the Royal President’s Dinner, which was held Sept. 12 at the Banqueting House in Whitehall.
