MOULTONBOROUGH — The 5th annual Carroll County Stamp Show will take place on Saturday, September 7 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Moultonborough Lion's Club off of the Governor Wentworth Highway in Moultonborough. The show is sponsored jointly by the White Mountain and Wolfeboro Stamp Clubs.
Free admission and parking are offered. There will be a silent auction from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Other features during the day include, Dealers' Bourse, exhibits, hourly door prizes, Penny Boxes offering stamps at 2c-5c, USPS and refreshments.
Dealers from several states will be showing off their stock consisting of US and foreign stamp collections, and supplies as well as First Day Covers, Postal History, and Postcards. Those who have collections or an unwanted accumulation, dealers will assist attendees in determining its value and possible future home for it. The more valuable stamps can be sold and the less valuable ones can be donated to a veteran's hospital, or a stamp club.
In celebration of the White Mountain Stamp Club's 40th anniversary there will be an exhibit for visitors to see. This year's show will feature something new, as there is an opportunity for participants to to take part in a stamp swap. This swap offers people a chance to swap 100 different stamps in good condition for someone else's packet. It is asked that foreign and US stamps are not mixed in the same envelope. Glassine envelopes are preferred so people can see the contents.
