Successful BPP attendance at the Essen fair

The expertisers’ stand at the 24th international stamp fair in Essen from 8 to 10 May 2014 was once more an attraction for many collectors and dealers who wanted to go with their treasures for identification purposes or who just had general questions about expertising.

Over 200 consultations during the three days show the great interest of the public in this free service by the BPP, supported by the management of the fair who provided an ideally located, easily accessible stand. "For many visitors it is an absolute highlight, to speak personally with Mr Schlegel. I think that is a real asset of this great event" BPP President Geigle stated. His Board colleague Tworek, the long-standing fair organiser of the expertisers’ federation, was present during all the three days of the event. "Our expertisers are active at fairs with great commitment. The personal contact with our expertising clients is very important, to gain some insight into their needs and problems."

For the BPP were there were Tobias Huylmans, Hansmichael Krug, Volker Mehlmann, Dr Hans-Karl Penning, Hans-Dieter Schlegel, Rolf Tworek and Michael Wieneke. We are very grateful.

SUSPECTED FRAUD REGARDING THE DEALER PETER FECH

"The fraud scandal surrounding the Gerbrunn stamp dealer Peter Fech continues. The well-known dealer has been under suspicion for many years, in particular regarding the large-scale distribution of forged or faked stamps at fairs in Germany." With this announcement, the Federal “BUND FORUM” (www.bund-forum.de) informs its readers about a criminal investigation in Würzburg.

We advise all collectors who purchased stamps with BPP expertising marks from the accused to submit them for checking by the appropriate BPP expertisers.
