Rossica journals awarded Large Vermeil and second place at WSC ISRAEL 2018 shares
The 2017 Rossica journals competed this May in Jerusalem in the literature competition at the FIP-sponsored World Stamp Championship ISRAEL 2018. The jury awarded Rossica 88 points and a Large Vermeil medal. Of the 19 entries, we shared second place with Vaccari Magazine from Italy. The Stampedia Philatelic Journal from Japan won first place and received a Gold with 90 points. The editorial board thanks all contributors for the continuing success of our publication at major world exhibitions! WE know that it's a great journal, and it's gratifying to see that others do as well.

The Rossica Identification Service (RIS)
Rossica has introduced a new identification service, free to members, and a minimal $5 fee for non-members. This is not an opinion of authenticity service,
but is offered to help collectors tap the vast wealth of knowledge at the Society to help identify items in their collection that might be difficult to identify.
There is a link at the bottom of the Rossica home page, or you can access it at this link: http://www.rossica.org/ris.php.
The Samovar - Rossica's Discussion Forum
The Samovar is the Rossica Society's discussion forum, where all things philatelically Russia and related are discussed. Every forum except the Society Forum is
available for viewing by the general public. Visitors that wish to participate in our forum discussions must register first.
The Rossica Virtual Gallery (RVG)
Ever since the early 1980s, the Rossica Society would preserve information and material contained in its members' exhibits, and make that information
available to members through photocopies (usually black-and-white) or CDs/DVDs. Today, the Rossica Society is pleased to share our award-winning
exhibits to the public through our digital forum, The Rossica Society Virtual Gallery, or RVG. We have more than 36 exhibits digitized, and available
for viewing on a computer.
