New Issue: UNPA show card for Sarasota National Stamp Exhibition

The United Nations Postal Administration (UNPA) has announced it will issue a show card to mark its participation in the Sarasota National Stamp Exhibition, which opens tomorrow in Sarasota, Fla.

The new show card features the $1.15 Albania Flag stamp from the recently issued Flag Series. It also has Feb. 3 cancellation from the U.N. headquarters in New York.

The UNPA has already issued one show card this year, marking its participation in Fullerton, Calif.’s Orcoexpo. Last year, nine show cards were issued by UNPA.


The Sarasota National Stamp Exhibition runs from Feb. 3-5, and of the 35 dealers slated to fill the bourse, one – St. Catharines, Ont.’s Roy Houtby – is from Canada. Houtby is a long-time dealer and owner of Roy’s Stamps.

The show is also part of the American Philatelic Society’s World Series of Philately program.
