10 MAY 2022, 6PM EAST COAST TIME A ZOOM PRESENTATION BY DAVID FIGG THE PRESIDENT OF THE AUSTRALIAN MATCH COVER COLLECTORS SOCIETY: Phillumeny – One out of the box…….You just don’t know what you are going to strike next
David Figg started collecting in 1960 when:
as a 9-year-old boy walking to school that I kicked over a matchbox in the gutter only to find that it had a picture on it (Brymay Birds & Animals issue) so took it to school, showed my mates and we started collecting. They soon lost interest and so I acquired their holdings to complete my set. I had a Great Aunt in the UK who also sent me labels and so my collection slowly grew. The labels were soaked off and pasted in an exercise book.
In 1967, I learnt of the existence of the Australian Match Cover Collectors Society (AMCCS) through a work colleague of my late father at Parker Brothers Bakery who took his son to the meetings. This was to be the start of a life-long passion for the hobby.
