Just wandering if any other country has issued a stamp for a Philatelic Society. This one was issued by Guyana on 16 February 2015, there were 1,750 printed and apparently they were only available through post offices.
Great thread topic! While there are numerous stamps commemorating philatelic exhibitions (and thereby commemorating the sponsoring stamp society and sometimes an anniversary), there are few that I know of that are dedicated to commemorating a specific stamp society such as the one shown by Martyn above.
A couple that I can think of (sorry, no pictures):
Barbados, 30Jan1996, 100th anniversary of Barbados Philatelic Society Chile, 24Nov1988, 100th anniversary of Sociedad Filatelica de Chile
Obviously, there are a LOT of cinderellas issued by the various stamp societies, as well as valid postage stamps issued by private mail companies.
Later this afternoon, I'll try to compile a list of the ones I know of (probably about half a dozen) for stamps issued by the general post office, and pilfer some pics. A surprising number of them are South American countries.
Of course, if anyone has any, feel free to post pics!!!
