Germany & Colonies Philatelic Society
The year 2014 marked the 50th anniversary of the first year of operation of the Germany & Colonies Philatelic Society following the amalgamation of the Germany & Colonies Stamp Club (established 1947) and the Stockton German Study Group (1960).

The G&CPS celebrated its inaugural year in 1964 with the first Germania Posta philatelic exhibition held in Stockton.

Message: Blocks 5z and 6z can vary in thickness, but I am surprised to hear that one is as low as 0.178 mm, between 0.180 and 0.190 is normal. The thinner blocks (5 and 6) are usually the standard 0.150 mm. The thicker blocks are the scarcer and therefore more expensive
