The October issue of Stamp & Coin Mart includes eight FREE stamps from Aland for every reader. Plus, a FREE copy of the Stampex catalogue! ...
The October issue is set to be a must-have for collectors, as it includes an exclusive FREE booklet of eight stamps from the island nation of Aland, and a FREE copy of the Stampex catalogue - the official guide to the national stamp exhibition taking place in September.
The free stamps depict classic cars and were originally issued by Aland in 2008. Now collectors can claim their free stamps just by buying the October issue.
The October issue also includes a FREE copy of the Stampex Catalogue, the official guide to the national stamp exhibition which takes place between 14 and 17 September at the Business Design Centre, Islington London.
For the first time, the catalogue has been published by the team behind Stamp & Coin Mart, and provides visitors with all the information they need to make the most of a visit to the event.
The October issue includes an in-depth guide to the stamps of Congo, which was controlled by Belgium between 1884 and 1960. The political situation produced an array of interesting stamps, which are highly collectable and reflect the huge country's complex culture, and these issues are examined in detail in the October issue of Stamp & Coin Mart, providing readers with all the information they need to start or improve a collection.
Meanwhile, an in-depth look at the Spanish Civil War includes an array of stamps and postal history, including propaganda issues, local stamps and unusual letters. Using material from the British Library Philatelic Collections, we examine the ways in which the war influenced stamps and detail how collectors can describe the conflict using philatelic material.
Our coin section will include an explanation of the coin shortage in seventeenth-century Britain, while our two popular series on Scottish coinage and the Papal coins issued by Popes conclude.
With another gem from both the Royal Philatelic Collection, a guide to first day covers relating to Concorde, together with in-depth news, opinion, and collecting advice, - and the two free gifts - October's Stamp & Coin Mart is another must-read!
