The Rossica Society of Russian Philately
- NY-2016 Exhibits
The organizing Committee of the international show NY-2016 released its regulations for exhibitors here http://www.ny2016.org/ International shows accept 1, 5, or 8 frame exhibits, with the latter reserved for winners of Large Vermeil or higher at previous international shows. Our member Vesma Grinfelds is appointed Exhibit Coordinator west of Mississippi.
- 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
- Valery Zagorsky's award
Our member Valery Zagorsky received a Gold Award at the Rossica-2014 show in Moscow for his book "Drafts of Stamps of the USSR" reviewed in the last issue of the Rossica Journal. He presented his book to our members in San Francisco in April.
In addition, he keeps publishing a wide range of catalogs; the newest ones are already available in his Russian Internet store and will be available in his American store in mid-February. This is not an advertisement, so please google his stores yourself, folks.
