GB Collectors Meet in Billingham
of Graham Winters)
Greg & Sue Spring took part in a well-attended meeting for members of the GBPS and other GB collectors from across the North East and Scotland on Saturday 3 November 2018. Dealer in residence on this occasion was Bill Barrell who treated us to a fascinating sneak preview of his exhibit for Stockholmia 2019. Bill's display contained excellent material telling the story of the Perkins Bacon printing contract for early GB stamps.
One of many contributors to the day, Greg Spring from Cavendish presented his new display on postal mechanisation as well as providing the opportunity for a pre-publication preview of Cavendish's upcoming December catalogue.
The purpose of these meetings is to provide a forum for GB collectors outside of London, and it is hoped that the GBPS will adopt the format as a floating regional group.
The next meeting is scheduled to take place in Newcastle on Saturday 16 March 2019, and then in Derby at Cavendish's auction room on a Saturday in October 2019 (watch this website!).
