Linn’s Stamp News has been named the official publisher of three special show editions for World Stamp Show-NY 2016.

The highly anticipated international stamp exhibition will take place May 28-June 4 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center located on 11th Avenue between 34th and 40th streets in Manhattan.

Our Linn’s Stamp News World Stamp Show-NY 2016 Special Preview, an edition completely dedicated to the show and how to plan for it, is available now when you sign up for a free trial of our digital edition.

Stamp shows of this magnitude typically are held only once every 10 years in the United States.

International shows offer a unique opportunity for collectors to learn about the stamp hobby, to see philatelic gems that are seldom displayed together in one venue, and to view world-class exhibits.

 

Linn's Stamp News and Scott Catalogue staff will be on hand at the show and look forward to engaging with our readers. You'll be able to find us at Booth #951.

Find our special show editions here as they are given out at the show:

          Sunday, May 29 —
Show Daily 01
          Monday, May 30— Show Daily 02 
          Thursday, June 2 — Show Daily 03
