Following an initial response, Courtenay philatelist Dick Tatton is opening up his collection to any collector or anyone interested in stamp collecting.

Following an Oct. 1 story in The Record, Tatton is opening up his collection for free – including stamps, catalogues, reference or stock books, and other related material.

Initially, he offered his collection to former students of the Valley View Elementary and École Puntledge Park Elementary stamp clubs.

He asks those interested to give details about their collection and what the types of stamps are of interest.

He stipulates interested collectors must pick up the stamps from his house, but asks for a letter first, which should include their full name and telephone number.

Letters can be sent in the mail or dropped off in his mailbox care of Dick Tatton, 1440 Thorpe Ave., Courtenay, B.C., V9N 7K7.
