|Email item||Print item||
The Gozo Philatelic Society has set up a new exhibit in their showcase on level -1 at Il-Hagar Museum in Victoria.
A selection of philatelic items from the renowned Juncker Melitensia collection recently donated to the GPS have been chosen which should be of interest to non-philatelists too.
They include numerous original 19th century letters sent from Malta using Great Britain stamps from the reign of Queen Victoria, together with further loose stamps showing clearly the A25 (both types) or M identificatory postmarks.
The GPS said that as has now become the practice, these will remain on show for 5 weeks – with something new available towards the end of October.
Opening hours at Il-Hagar Museum, St George's Square, are 9am-5pm seven days a week, there is no entrance fee.
