Welcome to the site of « Amicale Philatélique d’ANNECY »
For more than a century l’Amicale Philatélique d’Annecy (APA) is a meeting place for collectors of stamps and postmarks – both at an incipient and experienced stage – as well as for enthusiasts of postal history. APA offers a rich portfolio of services to its members like new philatelic issues, worldwide catalogs, evaluation of collections, and access to a well-equipped library with hard to find publications in all philatelic fields.
APA organizes regularly special events as exhibits, Stamp Days, and conferences on philatelic and postal history topics.
On our website you will find various sections about our activities and events as well as articles, studies and exhibits, published by APA members, devoted to French postal history. We put a special accent on the Savoy region before and after the annexation by France in 1860. We also provide insight into foreign countries philately (Europe, USA, China etc. …) and in specific themes as polar philately or aero philately.
For information requests do not hesitate to contact us in English (or German). We will do our best to answer quickly.
