Runner-up for the Crawford Medal

Royal Philatelic Society of London – June 2022

The Crawford Medal is a silver-gilt medal awarded for the most valuable and original contribution to the study and knowledge of philately published in book form during the relevant period. This Medal is open to world-wide competition and has been awarded by the Society on 88 occasions since the first award in 1920.

The medal is named after James Lindsay, 26th Earl of Crawford, who by the time of his death in 1913 had amassed the greatest philatelic library of his time. The library was bequeathed in its entirety to the British Museum and is today held at the British Library in London.

The Small Trelleborg Medal

The Trelleborg Philatelic Society

“A special honorable mention and a small medal is awarded to the Danish author, exhibitor and jury man Lars Engelbrecht for the solid book “Postal Stationery of Denmark – The Bi-coloured Issue 1871-1905″. A book that shows, with the help of great research and many good and detailed illustrations, everything you need to know about Danish postal stationery. The book is excellent and imbued with great knowledge and solid research in an interesting and significant area. This medal, to Lars Engelbrecht, will be handed out in connection with one of The Trelleborg Philatelic Society’s meetings in 2022.”

The Trelleborg Philatelic Society was formed in 1966. Among the founders were a couple of well-known international philatelists Sten Christensen and Sigge Ringström.
