A Jubilee International Trade Fair Collector Prague – only few days remain
Postal Administrations at the Fair (September
14 – 16th)
The United Nations Postal Administration (UNPA) is issuing its tenth so-called white card. It has participated at every annual fair, so anyone who has been buying the postcards since 1998 now has a nicely rounded collection. In accordance with tradition, Sunday, 16 September will be United Nations Day at the fair.
Whenever German Post (Deutsche Post) has participated at the Prague fair, it has surprised collectors with a beautiful envelope. This year will be no different.
Slovak Post will not let itself be outdone. After last year’s Charles IV, this year its post cards and rubber stamp will be dedicated to Prague Castle.
Australia Post, although represented by
the Polish company Profilex, has not missed a single annual Collector fair,
just like the UNPA. As a thank-you to the organizers, for this year’s tenth
anniversary fair it is issuing a reprinting of a block of stamps for the
75th anniversary (what a coincidence!) of the in Sydney Harbour Bridge.

A new catalogue of Slovak phonecards (1993 – 2007) will be for the first time available at the stand of Mr. Marian Jobek.
The Daily Newspaper Právo Will Be a Media Partner for the Tenth Annual Fair
