The Tuva Philatelic Research Society

The Tuva Philatelic Research Society was born in 2001 and is now defunct.   Here' s a copy of the email announcing the group's existence.

From: "J. Eric Slone"


As promised, I've begun a new organization for people interested in the study and collecting of Tuvan stamps and postal history. Named the Tuva Philatelic Research Society, you can find us online at <obsolete address deleted in 2007>. The site is currently undergoing development, but enough is there now to get a good idea where we are going.

Membership is:

  • Regular Member $10 / year
  • Life Member $50
  • Junior Member $ 5 / year (must be under 18)

If you join by the end of July, you get a two year membership for the price of one (regular and junior members). 

So what does membership buy you?

- 10% off selected Tuva Trader merchandise for regular members
- 20% off selected Tuva Trader merchandise for life members
- Access to the member's directory and email addresses
- Access to our dynamic online Tuva Stamp Catalog
- Full color illustrations
- Listing of all known varieties
- Special members only offers on Tuvan philatelic items
- Access to the society newsletter and archives
- The ability to vote and participate in surveys

For all site visitors we offer a discussion group/community with real-time chats, FREE classified ads, and FREE downloads of cool Tuva-related items.

We are a new and evolving organization. If you are interested in being involved, perhaps even being an officer in the society, please let me know. We are looking for a president, vice-president, and all the other usual accomplices.

Please note that I am running this organization on a temporary basis until someone else steps forward to run it.

I hope you'll visit and join us!

Best wishes,
