Already our notes from July have been overtaken by the excellent news that we can now report that our fully
illustrated, giant postal auction will be held as usual in September, based largely on important material from the collection
of our late chairman Peter Andrews.
Ken Doig (ESC 368), our member in Bass Lake, California, writes to note that he has searched this site for “cigarette”
and found 48 links – but no details except a brief history of Nestor Gianaclis and Ed Laurens. Peter Feltus had extensive details in his 1982 Revenue Stamps
catalogue (with pp 27-40 listing stamp types 1894-1979 and Appendix VI detailing regulations for use and listing dozens of exporters), but it does seem a
prime opportunity for an article if any member has a reasonable collection.
