Civil War Postal Exhibition and Symposium Announced

      Advance registration is open for the Civil War Postal Exhibition and Symposium (October 24-26, 2019) sponsored by the Confederate Stamp Alliance in conjunction with the American Philatelic Society.

    Come out to the American Philatelic Center in Bellefonte, PA for dedication of the Kaufmann Civil War Room, a World Series of Philately show and to fully experience “The Civil War, a Postal System Divided”. All are welcome to this free event, although registration is required either in advance or at the venue.

     Made possible with a grant from Robert A. Siegel Auction Galleries and financial support from H. R. Harmer GPN and Schuyler J. Rumsey Philatelic Auctions, this one-time event will feature Civil War centric exhibits, dealers and speakers. The already sold-out bourse is set to include 10 specialized dealers and international philatelic auctioneers.

Symposium topics include: 

     This WSP show will have 125 competitive frames, as well as a court of honor. The Grand Award winner will be eligible for the 2020 Champion of Champions in Hartford, Connecticut, at StampShow 2020.

     Over 50 percent of the competition frames have been spoken for and the court of honor frames are almost over-subscribed. Deadline for entries is August 15, 2019.  Any interested exhibitors are advised to apply now.

     Exhibit set-up will be Thursday. View exhibits on display Friday and Saturday along with judges Darrell Ertzberger (Chief Judge) Dr. Daniel C. Warren and Stephen Reinhard.
