Louis Caprario, our Christmas Seal & Charity Stamp Society Treasurer breaks new ground with his single frame, 16 page exhibit.
The 1908 Christmas Seal - The First National Issue, was just given the Best in Show Award in the Single Frame Competition at Philatelic Show 2019 held in Boxborough, MA, an APS World Series of Philately qualifying show. It had earned a large gold award and was presented with the CS&CSS Exhibit Award as well.
The Single Frame Best in Show Award, and Multi-frame Open Competition Grand Award and Reserve Grand Award, were presented at the culmination of the Show Banquet.
Lou goes on, "I am overwhelmingly pleased to have garnered this award, but it also signals a breakthrough in Christmas Seal exhibiting in general. The exhibit will next be entered into the Single Frame Champion of Champions competition sponsored the American Association of Philatelic Exhibitors at Ameristamp Expo in St. Louis next March."
