IPSC had a great meeting at this year's SESCAL. Mr. Sadri gave an excellent talk about history of Iranian Philately. I will write a detailed report in our next bulletin. We also did really well on the exhibit front and I am really happy to annouce that Iran related exhibits won BOTH the single frame grand as well as the overall grand at the show! I believe this is the first time we have had such a strong showing at the large national show anywhere. Here are the results:
Behruz Nassre "Persia, Nasser-eddin Shah Qajar Postal Stationery, Issued 1876-1893" (5 frames)
Federation Grand Award, Gold
United Postal Stationery Society Marcus White Award: Best Postal Stationery
American Association of Philatelic Exhibitors: Plan and Headings Excellence Award
K Joe Youssefi "Indian Postal Agencies in Persia (1865-1923)" (1 frame)
