- A Report by Kenneth Sequeira from Dubai
Federal National Council (FNC) Speaker Mohammed Ahmed Al Murr on Thursday opened Sharjah 2013 Stamp Exhibition, organised by Emirates Philatelic Association as part of the celebrations of the 42nd UAE National day.
The five-day event, now in its fourth year, brought together more than 50 leading stamp exhibitors, including some 30 dealers who are displaying some of their most valuable collections.
The exhibition encompasses a wide-reaching range of philately themes spanning two centuries, displaying some of the world’s most extraordinary and elusive stamps among the 128 exhibits. It chronicles milestones in the UAE’s four-decade history. Topics range from 19th century Egyptian postal stationery to the earliest days of postal aviation. “Philately is a pursuit enjoyed all around the world, bringing collectors together to exchange not only stamps but also ideas. It offers a unique way to look at our history,” said president of the Emirates Philatelic Association Abdulla Khouri.
