The British Empire Study Group Online Talk & Social
“The story of Canadian Local, Provincial & National Christmas Seals”
with Robert Vogel and Clifford A. Beattie
Thursday, December 9th 6pm ET
Christmas Seals were designed in 1904 to ride the season’s good tidings to raise awareness for charitable causes. In six short years, the Danish people raised enough money through the Christmas Seal program to build a new sanitarium for those ailing with tuberculosis. Today, these non-postage, non-denominational “stamps” are part of an increasingly popular area called “Cinderellas.” Scott Catalog lists some Christmas Seals. Like postal stamps that are government issues and represent a recognized cash value, Cinderellas have no official exchange value, but in the case of Christmas Seals, they made dreams come true.
Join us on Thursday, December 9th at 6:00 pm ET with Robert Vogel and Cliff Beattie, authors of The National Christmas Seals of Canada, for “The story of Canadian Local, Provincial & National Christmas Seals”.
The event is FREE. Membership in the BESG is free but not required to attend our events.
