The bourse (sales area) will include 16 dealers from throughout the Midwest. Free stamp collection appraisals will be offered for collectors and the general public.

Also, youngsters and beginning adult collectors will receive free stamps and instructions on the basics of stamp collecting.

The United States Postal Service will have a station at the show where it will offer the event’s pictorial postmark commemorating the 50th anniversary of the landing of man on the moon.

The show also will include the annual business meeting of the Wisconsin Federation of Stamp Clubs’ 24 member-club delegates and a state champion of champions exhibit competition. Wiscopex also will host the annual meeting of the Wisconsin Postal History Society.

Two silent donation auctions will be conducted on Saturday and one on Sunday. Six educational seminars are scheduled for the two-day show.

The exhibit awards and the federation’s 2019 dealer recognition award will be presented at the Saturday evening banquet.
