The VÖPh is 100 years old and, in the best philatelic traditions, is marking this significant birthday in cooperation with Austria Post with personal stamps, special postmarks and special registration labels.
The first meeting of the Federation of Austrian Philatelic Societies was held in Vienna on 9 March 1921 and included such distinguished philatelists as Ludwig Hesshaimer, Karl Willer and Edwin Müller. This important event was commemorated with a personal stamp featuring the Gasthaus Deierl where the first meeting was held and a special postmark. These are available from the VÖPh office in Vienna by telephone (0043 1 587 64 69) or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
