Termination of expertization by the end of 2015

Three longstanding members of the BPP will quit their experting work by the end of 2015:

Dr. Raymond Goebel (France)
Berend Hey (German occupation issues 1914-1918)
Bernd Meyer (German inflation issues)

The Management Board and the members of the BPP thank the retiring colleagues for their many years of successful expertizing and wish them all the best for the future.


Jürgen W. Glaeser died unexpectedly

With great sadness that the Management Board and members of the BPP learn the news of the sudden death of their longtime member Jürgen W. Glaeser from Hagen. Glaeser was the initiator of the “Group of Experts in the BPP,” for many years their spokesman. As a renowned Philatelist Glaeser had gained an excellent reputation in the industry, in addition, he was a dedicated local politician, who until 2014 worked as a district mayor in his hometown of Hagen. Jürgen Glaeser was 74 years old. We bow down in front of a grand, upright man, whom we will miss. Our sympathy in this difficult time is part of his family.
