What do John Lennon’s childhood collection, an Olympian gold medalist rower, and an inverted Jenny airplane have in common? Keep reading to learn the answer…
All of us here at the Hungaria Stamp Exchange are excited about the opportunity to attend the World Stamp Show 2016 May 28- June 4 in New York City. The excitement of experiencing a show which is projected to attract 250,000 stamp collectors, exhibitors, postal authorities, societies and dealers from all over the world combined with the fact it is located in the heart of New York City at the Javits Convention Center makes it an irresistible event.
There will be many extraordinary exhibits at the show including the unique 1856 British Guiana 1-cent Magenta stamp and other newsworthy gems, special society and club exhibits as well as some of the world’s most powerful and historically significant collections. For topical collectors there will be a booth sponsored by the Topical Society as well as exhibits and presentations on animals, sports, Olympics as well as other topics.
At The World Stamp Show attendees will likely enjoy spending time looking at the world-class exhibits, perhaps bid in an auction or attend a first-day-of-issue ceremony. But whatever you do, don’t neglect to immerse yourself in the presence of the societies and affiliates that will be present and take the opportunity to meet collectors of similar countries and topics that you collect now or may collect in the future.
Stacie from the Hungaria Stamp Exchange plans on being “ a philatelic traveler “ at the Show and will report back to you as she collects world stamps in the show passport and share other show experiences with those of you that cannot make it in person.
Not least among the philatelic adventures that await you will be those brought to you by our hobby’s societies and affiliates. Alan from the Hungaria Stamp Exchange will be hosting the General meeting of the Society of Hungarian Philately, while the SHP society will be sponsoring a presentation on “The Progression of Hungary’s Hyperinflation 1945 to 1946 presented by Bob Morgan and “The Classic Revenue Stamps of Hungary 1866-1891” by Karoly Szucs. The meeting and both presentations scheduled for Monday May 28th are open to the public and all are welcome to attend.
If you are planning on attending, please stop by and catch up with Alan at the Society for Hungarian Philately Society Booth # 779 or call him at (888) 868-8293 to arrange a time to catch up. For those of you that cannot make the trip, we plan on posting to the Hungaria Stamp Exchange blog during our visit to the show sharing all these new and exciting displays and exhibits.
And as some of you may have already guessed the answer to the question we started with at the beginning of this post. Yes, all are to be found at the World Stamp Show New York 2016!
We are looking forward to an exciting and inspiring show and enthusiastically hoping to talking with you about it soon. Hoping you all stay posted to the Hungarian Stamp Exchange blog and enjoy it along with us.
Alan, Diane, Andrew, Stacie
