On the anniversary of the Republic of Estonia, we’ll also celebrate the 105th anniversary of the Estonian postage stamp at TYPA. That is why we have invited the Estonian philatelist Oliver Hanschmidt to visit us on the 24th of February.

Oliver Hanschmidt has been actively collecting stamps since 2007, and in 2017 he presented his first exhibition collection in the field of philately in the postal history category.

Hanschmidt has represented Estonia as a commissioner at the 2019 World Stamp Exhibition in China, and this year he will represent Estonia at the World Stamp Exhibition in Germany.

At 12 o’clock, Oliver Hanschmidt will present the introduction “About the history and meaning of the Estonian postage stamp” at TYPA. He will introduce the people, without whom Estonia would not have the famous flower pattern stamps. In addition, Hanschmidt will talk about how it was possible to issue the first postage stamp so quickly after gaining our independence and thus introduce Estonia to the wider world through it. Results of printing samples of different post marks will be presented.

From 12:30 we offer the opportunity to print and perforate Estonia’s first postage stamps based on Rudolf Zero’s design.

At 2 pm, you have the chance to take part in the museum tour, which will be held both in Estonian and English.

Visiting the museum is free.
