Of Vatican Notes

As a long time member of the Vatican Philatelic Society, I have Vatican Notes dating from 1993 through 2018. For most of these years, I have all volumes issued for these calendar years. I am willing to pass these on, free of charge, to anyone interested. These are available to members or non-members with first preference granted to members. My only request is that if a recipient would like them mailed, he/she would cover the cost of postage. If interested in any of the publications, please let me know via email at mailto:
