Sept 21st: ARGENTINA – David Cummings (Caledonian PS)

A good turnout of Members was welcomed by President Mrs Jean Osborne, who reminded Members that “Scotex”, a two day Stamp Convention, was dated for the 20/21st October at Dewar’s Centre, Perth. After the usual Club business, Jean introduced David Cummings, from Caledonia Philatelic Society, Edinburgh, whose two displays referred to the early history of Argentinian Postage Stamps, starting in 1856. David showed values, colours, straight-line cancels, ministerial (Government Departments) overprints, and a great many other variations, all of which were very interesting and well displayed. President Jean called on Member Jim Young to propose the vote of thanks, which he did admirably and Members showed their appreciation.
