Exhibition, auction, souvenir covers, Sunday free admission await collectors at national stamp and coin show

The popular North Toronto Stamp Club’s annual exhibition will return to the National Postage Stamp and Coin Show on April 6-7 in Mississauga, Ont.

“We are never quite sure how many entries will come in, but this year, we expect 30 to 40 frames,” says John Wilson, who is co-chairing the exhibition with Les Selby. We have received entries that focus on traditional philately, postal history, social philately, and experimental class.”

Wilson says they welcome single and multiple-frame exhibits.

“We also judge single-page exhibits and offer advice for anyone who wants to submit a half-frame treatment of a theme that will hopefully become a formal exhibit. In the case of single-page entries, each year, we suggest three or four themes and are amazed at how creative our exhibitors are in interpreting them.”

Canada’s largest coin and stamp show returns to the Hilton Mississauga April 6-7, and admission on Sunday is free thanks to R. Maresch & Son.

Canada’s oldest auction company invites collectors of all interests to join them in celebrating the family firm’s 100th anniversary. Not only is R. Maresch & Son covering the $3 admission on the Sunday show, but the Aurora, Ont.,- based company is also releasing a souvenir anniversary cover. Only 100 covers will be available on Sunday at R. Maresch & Son’s table. Also, on April 7, the business—currently operated by third-generation Peter Maresch—will offer “anniversary treats.”

More than 50 coin and stamp dealers across Canada will be at this spring’s National Postage Stamp and Coin Show. The two-day show will also feature the popular Young Collectors’ Table and Auction, presented by the Royal Canadian Numismatic Association and Trajan Publishing.
