Episode #175 – How did Morocco cause World War 1? Are we crazy?

Welcome to Stamp Show Here Today Episode #175

Today we ask the question “How did Morocco cause World War 1?”  Are we crazy?  Well listen and let’s see if you agree that the seeds of World War 1 go back to the 1905 Morocco crisis.  Also, as Scott would ask, “What does this have to do with stamps?”.   Well we cover the fascinating stamp issues which arose from this and the other “dominoes” that caused World War 1.

We also give a shout out to Bradley Fritts who won the ITS NOT JUST STAMPS award at Westpex 2018.

Lastly, as we are discussing World War 1, we talk about expertizing the AEF stamp booklet panes issued for the american soldiers in France.
