Steve Lund made the presentation on Stamp Engraver Martin Mörck at APS AmeriStamp Expo, Birmingham, 23 Feb 2018. Attendance by 20 collectors exceeded expectations with much enthusiasm exhibited in the Q/A session. As expected many Slania collectors are now attracted to the stamps of Martin Mörck and the mission is to cultivate this new collecting area by the SCC because of its high Scandinavian content. The presentation took four parts. 1) Boats - Boatbuilding school, boats on Swedish, Danish, Finnish stamps, items from Martin's Norway dampskip collection 2) Greenland - Personal travel, Greenland Expeditions, Aviation 3) China - Engravers school, Post Denmark Competition for 2012 HCA Issue 4) Resources - "By Mörck" and FACIT Special Classic were promoted, www.martinmorck.se Sample collections (12 stamps from kiloware) were given gratis and a signed Greenland Arctic Birds sheet given as the door prize.
