Pre-Show Seminar - Military Postal History - Thursday, May 25, 2017

Once again, Rocky Mountain Stamp Show if holding a pre-show seminar specializing in areas of our attending societies. The last time was with the Philatelic Society for Greater Southern Africa and it was a huge success with attendance constant throughout the entire day. This year it will be the turn of the Military Postal History Society (MPHS) with some of the great names in philatelic research such as Sergio Lugo, Al Kugel, Dave Kent, Ted Bahry and Steve Henderson. A wide group of talks, some 12 speakers during the day on Thursday, will be of great interest with much to be learned. Some time will be allotted for some Q&A afterwards so please come and stay as long as you can. The list of titles will follow in the website for both RMSS and the MPS.
