Mystic Stamp Co. offers video interviews and free booklets

The Mystic Stamp Company has four interesting videos and three free downloadable booklets available on their Web site.

Among the interviews are renowned philatelist Roger Brody discussing some of the fascinating, illuminating, and little-known stories about changes in the development and use of America’s postage stamps since 1847, Michael Sefi (Keeper of the Royal Philatelic Collection) speaking about the collection, author Scott Trepel talking about rarities from the legendary Miller Collection, and David Beech (President, Royal Philatelic Society London) speaking on the legendary Grinnell Missionaries.

The free booklets include The Grinnell Missionaries, The Case for the Grinnell Missionaries and Response to the 2004 Royal Philatelic Society Opinion On the Grinnell Missionaries Stamps by Patrick Culhane.

These and others are also offered on the National Postal Museum Web site and are part Maynard Sundman (shown above) Lecture Series which is funded through a donation to the Museum by his sons David and Donald Sundman. The lectures further philatelic scholarship and explore and interpret new philatelic research.

In 1974, the Sundman family purchased Mystic Stamp Company of Camden, New York. Maynard's son Donald is president. Maynard continues to work with his son David, President of Littleton Coin Company in Littleton, New Hampshire.
