Stuart Rossiter Lecture: Dieter Michelson: What to Do and Not to Do: Participation at Philatelic Auctions

May 3, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The Stuart Rossiter Memorial Lecture 2023

5.00 pm, Wednesday 3rd May

The Stuart Rossiter Trust is pleased to announce that the 2023 Memorial Lecture will be held at 5.00pm on Wednesday 3rd May at the home of the Royal Philatelic Society London, 15 Abchurch Lane, London, EC4N 7BW, when Dieter Michelson FRPSL will give a talk entitled: What to Do and Not to Do: Participation at Philatelic Auctions

For over 100 years philatelic auctions have been a source for collectors to buy items for their collections and a platform for collectors to dispose of their holdings when they have made that decision. But still today many question marks exist for participants in philatelic auctions – both for buyers and consignors. This lecture will give the audience some more insight into the fascination of philatelic auctions and will give an update on recent developments. Questions from the floor will be more than welcome.

Dieter Michelson is Representative of the Royal Philatelic Society London in Germany, Vice President of the German Consilium Philatelicum and former Vice President of the International Federation of Stamp Dealers’ Associations. As co-publisher of the book series EDITION D’OR and EDITION SPÉCIALE plus other book publications he initiated the publication of more than 100 books on philately in the past decades. He is co-shareholder of the Global Philatelic Network which sponsors stamp exhibitions all over the world.

The lecture will be followed by wine and light refreshments.

Free admission is only by non-transferable ticket on application to: Rex Dixon frpsl at

Early application is advised.
