There are approximately 65 collections enrolled with 350 frames displayed at this National Exhibition, half of which are enrolled in the traditional class, one-third are enrolled in postal history and the rest are distributed among the various other classes. At the exhibition there will be the opportunity to see a unique collection of used letters with the coveted American edition from 1945. POST Greenland will, among others, be represented with its own stand. A new stamp series ’Greenland during World War II’ will be on sale at the exhibition.
