Helsinki Stamp Fair
Helsinki stamp Fair is the largest annual philatelic event in Finland. It gathers thousands of collectors. The Helsinki stamp fair is arranged by the largest stamp company in Finland; Suomen Filateliapalvelu oy – Philatelic service of Finland. This year it was held on 28.10.2012. Theme for this year was ‘Navigation’, and very appropriately the stamp features the Titanic. An exhibition card (as shown here) was also issued on the occasion.
The cancellation is in the shape of a scuttle or porthole cover, securely battened down. Thank you Ella for the cover (below) and the card.
