Scout Stamp Collectors Club

Scout Stamp Collectors Club

The Scout & Guide Stamps Club was founded as the Scout Stamp Collectors Club (SSCC) in 1957 as a result of the increased interest created by the numerous stamp issues commemorating the Baden-Powell Centenary and the Golden Jubilee of Scouting.  The first meeting was held on February 20th 1957 at the Headquarters of the International Bureau in London followed by an open meeting at the 9th World Jamboree at Sutton Coldfield.

Club membership exceeds 300 from over 30 countries and extends to collectors of Scout and Guide stamps, postal history of Scout & Guide events, special postmarks, slogans and meter cancellations, labels (seals) and postcards.

Membership is open to anyone who is interested in this popular thematic subject and close co-operation is maintained with similar clubs in the U.S.A. and many European countries.

The leading collectors of the world, specialising in Scout and Guide thematics, are members of the SGSC and their expert knowledge and advice is available to fellow members.
