I'm searching for particular article by Rev David Hill, of St Nicholas Church Lutton Lincolnshire UK who had organised a printing of stamps (2s/6d & 12.5p) during 1971 Postal Strike to raise money for a heating system for his 14th Century Church. A picture of which is depicted on the stamps.

His article appeared in the 12th Feb 1972 Issue of Stamps published in New York.

I can't find such a publication listed now.

Can anyone help??

I have acquired these stamps plus 2 first day covers from rev David Hill, now retired. I also have a part copy of his article but second page of which is missing.

Also he mentioned in our correspondence that enough money was raised to install modern heating, with many stamp collectors at that time buying up the stamps for their collections.

Have any members also acquired these stamps??

My email address is tedpawley@gmail.com

Thank you for your help. Ted

I would ask or write mail to the publisher? Funny because I just been buying some of the postal strike stamps not sure if that was one of them, I just looked it was Exeter I am afraid. If your looking to buy, Ebay would be the place to look. Or type it into your browser, there maybe other auction sites that have them. I can tell you they are asking silly prices and there are very few at low prices but a few, if your being specific, maybe not.

Again have you searched the internet on the article because it maybe out there as it is old now?

If You have done all that I can only think of joining a USA Stamp Forum?

I will see what I can search upon it or maybe someone has. they are a good bunch in here too.

Julian - the link goes to Stamp Magazine (owners of this website!)

I don't think a magazine called Stamps is still published in New York.

The American Philatelic Research Library can be contacted via: https://stamps.org/services/library and should be able to answer the question-

Lol sorry I never realized, I was just doing quick searches for Ted, Yeah the Stamp site only did back copies to either 87 or 77 but there was a contact button. I am not sure about APRL, They have moved to a new building but this was a few years ago now, so maybe could be an avenue, I would still chase the magazine first. Done the Ebay search with nothing. There was something on something like Pineinterest but it had little info and was sold anyway and it blocked me anyway with a huge "Sign In" dialog box.

Edward,

email contact for this magazine, "Stamp Magazine" has nothing to do with the magazine Stamps published in the US. Indeed there were at least three magazines of that name over the years and one was published in the UK.
