Scouts on Stamps Society International (SOSSI) is a nonprofit philatelic organization specializing in the collecting, study, and enjoyment of stamps and other postal items celebrating the Boy Scout and Girl Scout (Guide) movements. Join Us!

Join the American Philatelic Society Stamp Chat on September 26, 2023 at 7:00 p.m. EDT with Dr. Frederick Lawrence, FRSPL, longtime SOSSI member.

Join Dr. Frederick Lawrence FRPSL - international award-winning exhibitor, judge, consultant, columnist and all-around Scouting on Stamps expert - as he shares his perspective on the life of a cover.  In Dr. Lawrence's own words: "every stamp, every cover in our collections and in our exhibits has a story, of how it came to be in our temporary possession, and who owned it before us, and where it has been, and when it was there."  In this episode of Stamp Chat, Dr. Lawrence will explore a Mafeking siege cover to find its story, and discover the stories of the covers in your own collection.
