Dear all, It was a real pleasure to meet the SPS members in person at the NY world stamp show - Larry, Kevin, Brian, Fred - and to see some old aquaintances - Jerry, John Barone - amongst a few other local collectors and friends and some top dealers from Spain. It was a great show and a once in a decade experience (looking forward to Boston 2026!). Larry is being quite modest - he not only exhibited a unique assembly of the postal history of the foreign offices in Morocco but he also was an active volunteer for the show. Finally a huge thank you to Brian for his invitation to speak at the meeting, it was a fantastic experience to present to fellow collectors and do it in front of my kids!

Switching gears a bit, Afinet has just kicked off their summer virtual exhibit which will run until the end of August. 43 collections in all, covering classical period, civil war, colonies, topicals and foreign countries. Collections can be viewed at:

Cheers, Jaume

Hi everybody. I just receive a cover from Madrid with a very strange mark "Censurada' in black (33 * 8 mm) not found in Heller. Any idea ?

Wow!!!!!!! Thank you everyone for those attending NY2016. Jaume Balsels gave a wonderful power point presentation on the Spanish Classical Period. There were 15 people in attendance at this wonderful venue. The night before we had a wonderful dinner at the Spain retaraunt and bar. Beleive me, a good time was had by all. I hope we are able to keep up with this type of turnout for our annual meeting. Thank you one and all. Larry Gardner
