FDC Exhbits Win Big at SESE

First day cover exhibits ruled at the Southeastern Stamp Expo, January 31 - February 2, 2020, held in Peachtree Corners, Georgia (site of Americover 2018).

Charles J. O'Brien, III took the Multi-frame Grand Award for his Frank Lloyd Wright First Days & Usages of the Two Cent Definitive Issue. This is a must see exhibit, He even has a full deck of 100 panes of the stamp INSIDE the exhibit frame.

In addition, in what is apparently a first outside of Americover, first day cover exhibits took three of the four APS Awards of Excellence:
  • Kris McIntosh 1900-1940 for The 3 Cent Susan B. Anthony Issue, which also won a Large Gold
  • Charles J. O'Brien 1940-1980 for his Frank Lloyd Wright exhibit, which also won a Large Gold
  • Mark Thompson 1980-present for Women in the Black Heritage Series - From Fields of Slavery to the Halls of Congress, which also won a Large Vermeil
Kris McIntosh also received a Vermeil for The 3 Cent Progress of Women Issue.

I had a non-competitive exhibit on A Selection of First Day Covers for the United States 50th Anniversary Woman Suffrage Stamp.
