BNAPS discontinues exchange circuit

The Philatelic Exchange Circuit offered for many years by the British North America Philatelic Society (BNAPS) has been discontinued.

BNAPS has discontinued is exchange circuit due to low demand.

“After extensive discussion, the BNAPS board of directors passed a resolution at the Sept 1, 2022 board meeting to discontinue the Philatelic Exchange Circuit. The reasons behind this decision include low sales volume, low member participation, insurance costs greater than the net return to the society and the expansion of alternate online purchase/sales sites,” Board Chair Richard Judge wrote in the society’s October Newsletter.

Judge said current owners of material in the Philatelic Exchange Circuit may email inquiries to:

“To ensure that exchange circuit pages are properly returned, it would be helpful if owners provide any owner page numbers, category and any photocopies or scans of submissions that may be available with their email inquiries,” Judge wrote. “BNAPS extends thanks and appreciation to Andy Ellwood who has served as the exchange circuit manager for many years.”
