The show will feature a bourse of 11 stamp and postal history dealers, according to a mid-January listing on the ASDA website, along with a United States Postal Service booth, a United Nations Postal Administration booth, and a program providing free informal appraisals of stamps, covers and postcards.

The Hollywood Stamp Club also will have a table.

For youth, the show will feature stamps by the bucket and a giveaway of stamp albums.

A U.S. Flag forever definitive stamp is slated for issue on Feb. 9 in Fort Lauderdale. A ceremony will take place in conjunction with the show.

The illustration on the Flag stamp is described by the Postal Service as a “striking graphic design of a flag with two crisp folds.”

Double-sided panes of 20, which the Postal Service describes as a convertible booklet, and coils of 100 will be produced by both Ashton Potter and Banknote Corporation of America, resulting in four collectible varieties of the new Flag stamp. Additional details will be published in a future issue of Linn’s.
