Membership DPAS

Dear sir, madam,

 We do appreciate your interest for the DUTCH PHILATELIC ASSOCIATION SKANDINAVIA. (DPAS) Your sympathy for the Scandinavian philately will hopefully deepen when you become a member of our association. We will inform you about philatelic and postal particularities of the countries and topics belonging to this collecting area.

 SCANDINAVIA is an area with great beauty and contrasts in nature, history, culture and environment. The, mostly, Scandinavian stamp designers represent its nature, culture and religion on a sparkling way with all the time again a surprising view. Our area is Norge, Sverige, Danmark, Grönland, Färöarne, Ísland, Danska Västindien, Finland, Åland. 

Pre-philately speaks his own language and takes you into the history of not only this area but also outside, pointing you at the influences of these countries on the neighbouring areas and vice versa. Philately, the time area that started with the appearing of the stamp, speaks a new language about communication and infrastructure. 

The DUTCH PHILATELIC ASSOCIATION SKANDINAVIA is not only an association for the professional but certainly also for the beginning collector whose interest for this Nordic area is just wakening and /or growing. Postal history such as covers, cards, postal stationary, forms, Cinderella’s and other entries can also give their extras to topic and thematic collections. 

The NFVS, "De Nederlandse Filatelisten Vereniging Skandinavië" is a member of the Royal Dutch Association of philatelist’s associations and has about 300 members inside and outside The Netherlands and many relations abroad. The association was founded back in 1964.

The association offers you, as a member living abroad;

1.)  4 times a year in full colour publicised magazine HET NOORDERLICHT, filled with interesting information, articles, and reviews of, new and old, books, catalogues and magazines.

2.) A magazine that won several prices during contests and on national and international exhibitions.

3.) 4 times a year an auction with lots of interesting items of all Scandinavian areas and/or topics including single stamps, sets, covers, collections, literature and useable accessories.

5.)  The possibility to order books and/or catalogues with discount.

Of course, you always are welcome to visit a meeting when you are in the Netherlands.
