a Yahoo Group

On August 27, 2004, a Yahoo Group called Philatelic Philippines was born.

I created this group in Cagayan de Oro City

"for Philippine philately -- stories, news reports, discussions, announcements, invitations, etc.

"Topics for discussion include:

"Philippine stamps and postal history
"Philippine stamp clubs and philatelic activities
"Stamp collecting in the Philippines"

Membership was open but those who posted messages unrelated to Philippine philately were removed from the list. There were more than 130 members.

A total of 1,071 messages dealt on, among others, stamp design contests, philatelic websites and books, bogus issues, stamp exhibits, stamp clubs, new issues, foreign stamps relating to the Philippines, stamp design errors, cinderellas, stamp exchanges, stamp dealers, stamp prices, covers and postal history, FDC cachets, stamp stores, and stamp identification.

The group was closed in 2014 and got deleted in 2015.

Picture shown here is that of the cover photo for this group, a photograph of a philatelic exhibit mounted by Philpost-10 in Cagayan de Oro.
