NTSC stamp swap going strong

Following in the footsteps of its “Swap Shoppe,” which launched in January 2019, the North Toronto Stamp Club (NTSC) has started a stamp-swap circuit for its members.

Everybody has duplicates, and one way of improving your additions to your collection is to trade with other people,” said NTSC Membership Chair Klaus Hintz in one of the club’s recent virtual meetings. “What we do is put together 100 stamps, send it to one of the members, he or she takes whatever he likes, replaces it with stamps of similar quality and value and passes to the next person.”

So far, five people participate in the circuit, but Hintz is looking to expand the service by inviting more NTSC members to join.

“We started with a worldwide circuit trade, and we now have one for Scandinavian stamps, and we will shortly also start one for topical items, meaning specifically cars, planes and trains, and we have another one just for east European stamps. We distinguish also between small and large stamps.”
