Spotlight on Societies: Iran Philatelic Study Circle (IPSC)


The Iran Philatelic Study Circle (IPSC) is the only worldwide organization devoted to the study of Iranian philately. The IPSC was formed in the United Kingdom in the early part of the twentieth century, reactivated in 1948, and reorganized along its present lines in 1966. IPSC members in the United States and Canada formed the American Chapter in 1982. The American Chapter is Affiliate No. 208 of the American Philatelic Society (APS) and subscribes to the APS Code of Ethics. The IPSC holds virtual meetings six times each year. In addition, holds general meetings at various shows. The IPSC issues a Bulletin 4 times a year with articles on Iranian philately written in English. Over time, the IPSC Bulletin has become the journal of record of Iranian philately. In order to promote Iranian philately and build trust in the philatelic market, The Iran Philatelic Study Circle Expertizing Service offers opinions on the genuineness of Iranian philatelic material at moderate cost.

IPSC will have a table throughout CAPX22 show as well as general meeting. the agenda for the meeting will be announced at a later date.
