ATA's National Topical Stamp Show

The first ten Flags of Our Nation stamps will be released on Flag Day, Saturday, June 14th during the American Topical Association's National Topical Stamp Show.

The show will take place in Clackamas, Oregon, a suburb of Portland.

In addition to the first-day event for the U.S. stamps, the show will feature a first day of issue set of stamps from Sierra Leone honoring Oregon Explorers and their Discoveries.

There will also be special cachets, cancellations, meetings, presentations, dealers and displays.

According to a press release put out by the ATA, "To entice more attendees to view the exhibits, a search among the 184 frames to find a stamp honoring the Oregon Trail will result in one lucky person winning $25 for his or her efforts."
