Philakorea 2014 – Day 5

The quietest day of the show so far. The highlight being yet more gifts from the Philakorea staff including the best gift I have ever received at a stamp exhibition. It wasn’t the tooth brush and tooth paste. Nor the Guide to Seoul. Not the thermos cup. Not even the 1980s-style calculator. It was the […]

Philakorea 2014 – Day 4

Today was the day that the awards for all the exhibits (except the Championship class) were revealed. There weren’t too many surprises. As always, there were collectors who were disappointed and those that were delighted. David was disappointed to see that the “Postal History of Belgium’s First Stamps the “Epaulettes” 1849-1851″ belonging to Mr. Huys-Berlingin […]

Philakorea 2014 – Day 3

Saturday was similar to the day before but with a much greater number of visitors from the general public and no deafening music! So I was pinned behind the stand in case that all important customer came by. However the day was mostly spent trying to explain that we (“David Feldman Switzerland” as the sign […]

Philakorea 2014 – Day 2

Not as busy as the first, Friday allowed myself and David to view the exhibitions we had wanted to see. There were no fewer than four excellent collections of Switzerland for us to study. Three of which were collections of Cantonals competing head-to-head in the 8-frame Traditional class. Many items were familiar to David from […]

Philakorea 2014 – Day 1

After an 18 hour journey from Geneva, it was a relief to get through Immigration and Customs to find the Philakorea information stand at Seoul Incheon airport. Their bright orange uniforms brightening up an otherwise miserable looking evening outside. With their much-appreciated help I was escorted to the official show hotel which they had arranged […]

Melbourne 2013 – Final Day

The final day was a quiet affair. Everyone was showing signs of weariness from the previous five days of work, as well as a sense of relief after many months of work that had gone into the preparation! Although my morning started with a mini adventure to the suburbs of Melbourne to pick up a […]

Melbourne 2013 – Day 5

Day 5 saw the climax of the show and the awards handed out for those with collections deemed worthy at the Palmares dinner. The $125 ticket price didn’t put people off attending the event which took place in the grand surroundings of the Crown hotel. The evening was kicked off by Malcolm Groom, the President […]

Melbourne 2013 – Day 4

Today I was able to study further the extensive exhibition collections on display. It was fantastic to walk around and see the names of many clients on the displays, and even recognise covers that we had sold in them! Seeing them put to good use is certainly one of the more rewarding parts of the […]

Melbourne 2013 – Day 3

The third day proved less sunny and less busy than the previous two days, which have me the perfect opportunity to view some of the exhibits. It seemed like a good idea to begin with the Court of Honour and the Royal Philatelic collection. The Royal Collection is largely based on the collection of J. […]
