National Exhibition Stamps and Postcards
This is a National One-Frame exhibition. Both Stamps and Postcards will be exhibited. The exhibition is presented by the Tasmanian Philatelic Society under the auspices of the Australian Philatelic Federation.
The Exhibition theme is “50 Years of Decimal Currency”
