Station VI. The Hand in Philately

The Hand is not absent in Philately. The seal was originally used in England in 1840 thanks to the initiative of Rowland Hill; it was in this country where seals started being collected. Dr. Carlos Martinez, bright Ex President of our Association will exhibit with great attention to detail a striking collection of attitudes and activities of the hand recorded on stamps, seals,  postmarks, letters and bandeletes (notices printed on the envelopes).
