France Exchange Packet

Subscribers generally see one packet per month comprised of up to twelve books of stamps and covers. There is a vast range of interesting stamps from 1849 to the present day. In addition there is a good selection of carnets and miniature sheets, back of the book material, service stamps, taxe, préoblitérés, covers etc. The standard is generally very good and much material is very reasonably priced. The packets are an excellent source for those wishing to complete general collections of France or to take advantage of rarely seen and unusual material.

Currently we are able to accommodate new members and would be delighted to add you to the circuits. There is no obligation to buy and you may retire from the circuits at any point. If you would like to join please get in touch with Richard Broadhurst, your France Packet Secretary, whose details are inside the front cover of this Journal.

In addition we are always looking for new material and would be pleased to hear from any vendors who can supply us with books of stamps or covers for sale.
