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.


Two winners of the Köhler Prize away

At the end of 2017, two important philatelists of the 20th century passed away: Paolo Vollmeier (died November 30,2017) and Zbigniew Mikulski (died December 28,2017). Both were winners of the Köhler Prize (in 2002 and 2000) and were among the most important philatelists of the last decades. Numerous publications, extensive expertise and an international reputation have distinguished them both. We will honor their memory.
