Discussions about how to stimulate youngsters´ interest in philately have been filling philatelic journals for quite some time: mostly theory, hardly any practice.
For some time, the author has been supporting a primary school in North Friesland by donating doubles and other spare material from his collection. This has been quite successful, as a “philatelic team” of nine students (from second form onward) is now urgently waiting for new supplies. Old magnifying glasses, pincers, used stamp albums – and of course stamps: old, new, thematic or just a colourful mixture – everything will be gladly accepted (but please no Hitler stamps, swastikas etc.!):
My own spare supplies are running out soon – so please donate whatever is no longer needed or wanted in your collection. This will help to clean up your shelves and to bring great pleasure to the young ones!
Please send material either to:
Kasper de Jong, 25832 Tönning
or directly to the headmistress: Edeltraud Dahmani, Grundschule Klixbüll
Schulstrasse 5, 25899 Klixbüll.
In preparation of an article about FRANZ SEE and his contributions to Bulgaria philately, Mr. Simmermacher is asking for support from all ARGE members.
If you have access to any post cards, letters or other material relating to Franz See, please contact Mr. Simmermacher or Ms.Kokot. Any copies or scans of your materials would be very helpful.
I am searching for info materials, literature and / or copies from collections re. the history of private / business stationery (official postcards with private imprints, advertisements, images etc.) in Bulgaria until about 1920, and for general information on the topic.
