MaltaPost organises The Maltex Philatelic exhibition and Collectors’ fair
MaltaPost has organised the Maltex Philatelic Exhibition and Collectors’ Fair which took place between 10 and 12 October at the Casino Maltese, Valletta. This exhibition, this time round, invited a number of enthusiasts and local organisations to display their philatelic items, literature, historical artefacts as well as other collectors’ items.
This year, the exhibition showcased various collectors’ items beyond philately, such as maps, historical artefacts, sports memorabilia, works of art and literature from local book publishers and organisations. Local as well as international philately collectors’ displayed an array of philatelic themes, including nature and historical events. For this special event the Philatelic Bureau issued an Occasion Card and a Personalised Stamp/Cover.
The card is available in mint and cancelled condition. A temporary letter box service was also provided during the opening hours of the exhibition. The cards and mail posted were cancelled with the Maltex special handstamp inscribed Maltex 17 Malta Philatelic Exhibition and Collectors’ fair.
