Priceless moments on Father’s Day!
Copied from the FB account of the Hellenic Philatelic Society:
Moments: Cases like these, where you want to say more; not to let them end.
It was only recently that we received a message. A lady asked to offer a complete set of “Philotelia” magazine from 1924 to 1955 in eight nicely bound volumes. We though to ask her what price she had in mind in order to prepare the ad for their sale. We got it all wrong! She had not any intention to sell. The magazine belonged to her father and all she wanted was the volumes to go somewhere worthwhile; not to be thrown away, but to be welcomed in a nice new place.
Philately is not just a collection of “stuff”. It is definitely more. It is moments. Priceless moments like these, which we chose to share with you.
As of this day, on Father’s Day(!), the volumes of “Philotelia” are in new, hospitable hands. In case she is watching us, we would like to thank her for these beautiful moments.
