winning independence in the second decade of the 20th century, the times of the Second Republic of Poland, occupation and struggle in exile then the initial period of functioning of the Post Office after 1944 and later years.

When starting the presentation of the Gallery we want to focus on the beginnings of Polish statehood after 123 years of partitioning.
The philatelic rarity can be both items of high material value and those that are characterised by rarity, although they have not always been appreciated in terms of price.
The Gallery is created on the basis of materials made available to us by philatelists. The subjective assessment of the owners of the shared philatelic items made available is verified voluntarily by the experts who are members of i-KF and the initiators of the Gallery before they are placed in the Gallery.

Today, August 15th, we are inaugurating the Gallery of Polish Philatelic Jewels. The inauguration day is not a coincidence. It refers to the historical breakthrough of the Bolshevik invasion of Warsaw in 1920 by Polish troops during the so-called Warsaw battle (13-25.08.1920), which, according to historians, is the 18th most groundbreaking battle in the history of the world. 

The user can find the Gallery in the upper, horizontal strip between the BIBLIOTEKA and O NAS tabs.
Items in the Gallery are presented with a division into: Postage Stamps, Postal Stationary and Entire. In each of these categories, the items are arranged on the axis of time. This means that the items with the earliest date of issue or postal circulation will always be at the top and those with the later introduction to circulation below. Thus, each subsequent update of the Gallery will cause a change in the order in which the items are presented. To this end, so that the user who regularly visits us can easily identify the values added in the latest update, we have decided to mark them with the icon. At the same time, each item can be magnified. To do this, simply click on the value after moving the cursor over it.

We will regularly update the Gallery, we want it to take place at least twice a month. We invite you to visit us and to participate in its creation.
