Large crowds at the booth of the BPP in Munich

The stamp fair in Munich from 6 to 8 March 2014 offered many interested people the opportunity at the BPP expertisers’ stand to obtain information and advice on all matters concerning expertising. A total of ten (!) expertisers and were kept very busy.

Franz Stegmüller recorded no fewer than 236 consultations over the three days. “Both collectors and dealers come to us with a wide variety of questions and requests. You can see that many interested people made careful preparations for this beforehand.” BPP chief Christian Geigle, who this year was not at the stand, added: “There is no substitute for the personal contact between the visitors and the BPP expertisers. For many, a visit to the expertisers’ stand was an integral part of their day.”

Offering services free of charge were: Peter Darmietzel, Dr Gertlieb Gmach, Arnold Goller, Claus Heitmann, Roland Pieles, Johann Ulrich Schmitt, Peter Sem, Rüdiger Soecknick, Franz Sangani and Dieter Weinbuch. A “thank you” to them all.


Dr. Heister suspended

The board of the BPP has suspended the expertizing activities of Dr. Knut Heister (Excpert area: Venezuela) at the BPP with immediate effect until 31.12.2020

BPP Expert wanted!

As a specialized collector, have you ever toyed with the idea of using your knowledge to be an stamp expert? Or have you ever been annoyed by an expert and thought: what he can do, I can do at least as well!

Advanced training seminar for BPP Experts in Pullach

The sun was rare this weekend, but instead it rained almost continuously in Pullach near Munich when eight BPP examiners gathered for a further training seminar at the “Hotel Seitnerhof” on 21 and 22 July.

The two lecturers, President Christian Geigle and Vice President Dr. Peter Provinsky, galloped with them through the newly created “Auditor’s Handbook” with its many regulations, in which the BPP regulates the work of its members, their relationship among themselves and their duties towards the association.
