50th Congress of the Federation of French Philatelic Societies, Annecy, in France 28.5.1977
On the occasion of the 50th Congress of the Federation of French Philatelic Societies, which was held at Annecy, in France from May 28-30, 1977, the postal department of France issued this first day cover and the stamp on it with a special postmark.
The Château d'Annecy, shown on the stamp, is a restored castle which dominates the old French town of Annecy in the Haute-Savoie département. It was bought by the town, restored and transformed into a museum, le musée-château d'Annecy. The castle is listed as a monument historique by the French Ministry of Culture.
My friend Merja gave me this FDC.
