NAPEX (The National Philatelic Exhibition of Washington DC) is once again at the McLean Hilton in Tysons Corner Virginia (7920 Jones Branch Drive / McLean, Virginia 22102). The show runs from May 31 to June 2. You can learn more about the show and the venue at http://www.napex.org
The meeting is open to all with an interest in Chinese philately – no secret handshake required. If you are not currently a CSS member, please feel welcome to stop by and join us.
Highlights of the meeting will include:
- A talk by Steve Frumkin, China Stamp Dealer Extraordinaire and frequent traveler to China. His talk will be titled Mengchiang's Unissued 1945 Kalgan Definitives. Steve always has fascinating insights into China philately.
- A chance to examine the new CSS Specialized Catalog of China to 1949. It is the most authoritative and comprehensive China catalog ever published.
- If he can get away from his booth, we hope to have a chance to meet Michael Rogers, premier dealer in stamps of China.
- An opportunity to meet fellow members of the Junk Chapter and discuss the prospect of holding future meetings and other possible Chapter activities.
- Also please note that Bill will be exhibiting at the show, his 9-frame exhibit The Martyrs Stamps of China -1932 to 1949. The exhibit has received a number of Gold medals and recently received the Reserve Grand Award at the Plymouth Show in Michigan.
