Few months ago we published a poll asking website visitors which philatelic topics interest them the most. We suggested several possible new topics on this website including Memel – Klaipėda, Central Lithuania, and Aerophilately, and broader topics related to postal history and philatelic forgeries.
The latest polling aggregate result shows that over 51% of LithuanianPhilately visitors encouraged us to develop new topics related to the Memel – Klaipėda philately. Thank you, for voting. We really appreciate your participation in the poll.
Today, we are delighted to announce the launch of a new series of posts related to the Memel – Klaipėda philately. We begin with the historical background that provides an essential reference frame for understanding the major historical events in the region. Next, we focus on a somewhat complicated philatelic history that was shaped by German, French, Lithuanian and local postal administrations.
If you enjoy new challenges and are attracted by material a bit on the offbeat side, the Memel – Klaipėda Territory can be a very enjoyable and a very rewarding area to collect.
