I have clubbed these two subjects together because many Philatelic Societies and Stamp Clubs ran small Exhibitions alongside their 'meets' or themselves did the organizing of local Shows. While most can be distinguished from the other, the attractiveness of many of these items leads me to believe they are best put together.

Anyone who has any Sheets, Labels, cards or covers from Clubs or Exhibitions please show them here.

Like their British counterparts, many items were issued in limited numbers and can be quite pricey. Some of the full sheets from earlier Exhibitions are way outside of my pocket........but it doesn't stop me searching !! Tongue During the Stamp Centenary year 1940, a whole host of clubs and Shows issued sheets or labels depicting the Penny Black and these would make a whole collection in themselves.

So let's have some fun with the U.S.A.

McKINLEY STAMP CLUB, 9th ANNUAL EXHIBITION AND BANQUET, CANTON, OHIO.

The McKinley Stamp Club joined the APS in 1927 [Chapter 11] and are still going strong today. They held their 84th Exhibition earlier this year.

The sheets below were produced for their 9th Annual Exhibition and celebrated the 100th Anniversary of the Penny Black.

The sheets are stunning, some of the best in USA Exhibition items I have seen. Produced by the House of Farnam who also produced First Day Covers under the name of Artmaster.

The sheets show the McKinley National Memorial in Canton, a monument to the 25th President, William McKinley who lived in the town.

The following 2 sheets were issued by the New Jersey Philatelic Federation for the 1938 Stampex Event held in Newark.

The sheets show Robert Treat, Co-founder of Newark [New Ark, 1666] over a Newark Skyline with an Aeroplane hopefully taking visitors to the National Stamp Exhibition !!

The Coliseum in New York opened in 1956 and along with a Photographic Exhibition, stamps took centre stage in this brand new, if rather plain-looking building.

The Fifth International Exhibition, FIPEX was hugely popular with large numbers of visitors from both USA and Worldwide. A number of souvenirs were produced and I will endeavor to show others another time. To start off, this set of labels shows the new venue. The set was also issued perforated.

It's been a while since I added to this, and it's always good to see some colour, even if not in your collecting area ! Wink

Before we continue with the USA tour I would like to say that adding to this collection has been very tough going, sometimes impossible. this present time is one of those occasions.

Lots of good material around in the  Cinderella arena at present, more so than at any time in years in my experience. But prices are high for many items and those in the USA Exhibition topic is one of them. In the last 2 weeks I have bid on over 80 items and have been successful 5 times ! Embarrassed I am bidding a lot higher than I normally do due to a dearth of such material but I still lose out.

Times are hard !

The sheets below came from the underground market in Charing Cross. Another fine example of the care and trouble taken by Organizers in the USA for show Souvenirs.

The Stamps, Medals and Coins Exhibition, Boston, 1935

APS StampShows. [National Philatelic Exhibition]

The first American Philatelic Society [APS] event was held in New York in 1886. Every year since then [except 1943] they have held their National Exhibition, now StampShow, in a different city in the US.

2016 will see the 130th event and will be held in the Oregon Convention Centre in Portland.

Many attractive souvenirs have been produced over the years, especially the earlier years, and none more so than this beautiful set from the 1936 event in Omaha, Nebraska. Features the superb printing of the American Bank Note Company.

I do like the two new posts. Very attractive stamps, especially the Omahas. I see that they are printed by the ABNC, which is responsible for other classic Cinderellas. A slight shame that it is the same artwork for all 4 stamps. Personally I seem to find American souvenir stamps for general trade exhibitions (a number of which I have posted in separate threads over the years) more attractive than those from philatelic societies. Perhaps its because the trade had more cash to splash and could afford higher calibre design teams. But then, the philatelists should have more of a handle on good designs.
Perhaps I should find my trade exhibition posts and put them into one thread.

Carrying on with the APS theme and notwithstanding Steve's preference for different designs, I give you the Twin Cities of 1929 ! Wink

Another nice set [of colours at least] and this time Printed by Greene Engraving Company of St.Paul.

The American Philatelic Congress was held in Cleveland, Ohio in November 1945 and a fine set of small Souvenir sheets/large labels were issued to commemorate the event.

They show the massive Terminal Tower which, when completed in 1930, was the world's tallest building outside of New York. With a nice Philatelic addition !

SEPAD, National Stamp Exhibition, June 1938

I recently received a wonderful gift from a friend in the USA of this 1938 Sheetlet & folder for the annual SEPAD Exhibition. Superb condition, like new and missing from my collection. The item celebrates the Swedish-USA tercentenary.
