Rotary Stamps of the World

George Koplinka's collection of Rotary Commemoratives

The photos here are examples taken from the stamp collection. George was careful in handling his stamps, AND he was super well organized. He not only build his collection, he clipped articles about countries that issued Rotary stamps. He subscribed to a number of phatelic journals and dealer price sheets.

For example, here is an album he almost filled:

The first page from this album is the 1931 Austria set, the first country to issue a commemorative Rotary stamp. George not only collected all the stamps (multiple times) but he saved references about its value.
How much is this 1931 Austria set worth in 2020? We don't know... Click image to open higher-resolution image in another window/tab

More pages from the album: samples of George's 1955 collection of 50th anniversary issues













Many countries issued 75th Anniversary sets (in 1980) to honor Rotary International
