The Rossica Society of Russian Philately
- Dr. Winter's collection
Dr. David Leon Winter was a director of NASA and US Chairman of space biology and a major collector of Russian and Soviet stationary, postal history, space topicals, etc. His heirs for some reasons will sell his collection in small portions through an estate liquidator Michaan's Auctions (http://www.michaans.com/), who contacted me regarding their sales. The first lots will be sold on Sunday, December 7. You can get a vague idea of the offered lots from their web site and then bid live via liveauctioneers.com after registration. Keep in mind that Michaan's charges unusually high hammer fee of 23%.
- Valery Zagorsky's award
Our member Valery Zagorsky received a Gold Award at the Rossica-2014 show in Moscow for his book "Drafts of Stamps of the USSR" reviewed in the last issue of the Rossica Journal. He presented his book to our members in San Francisco in April.
In addition, he keeps publishing a wide range of catalogs; the newest ones are already available in his Russian Internet store and will be available in his American store in mid-February. This is not an advertisement, so please google his stores yourself, folks.
