Stamp Club Quiz

Presented to the GVPS 20 Oct 2017

This is designed to encourage participation and discussion. All are encouraged to write down all the philatelic elements ( for example an overprint, postage due, roulette etc.) you notice for each item. In addition some, but not all items, will have additional questions. Likely some collectors will suggest answers which generate some discussion. We encourage any collector who does not understand an answer to ask for an explanation. We won't keep score.
