Display Material available Philatelic Club for Display at meetings
Philas House Display Collections
Over the years Philas House has been the fortunate recipient of a number of collections donated by members or their families and Philas has also purchased some significant collections itself from Auction offerings,
In the display catalogue I have tried to identify the quality of the various collections. Some of the collection are in a suitable state for Philatelic Clubs to borrow for display at the club meetings, those noted as 4 Star or 3 Star would currently be suitable. Those in the catalogue which are noted as 2 or 1 star would not be in a suitable state yet for clubs to borrow or may be too valuable and may only be viewed under supervision at Philas House.
Resetting or mounting of collection material is an ongoing task and whilst some stirling work has been carried out by Frank B Whitfield, Richard Peck, Milton Hook, Cyril McColough and Finn Kristiansen there is still much work to be done as new material is being constantly received and in some cases requires additional work before it may be available for Clubs to borrow.
