    HI MARK,
    I WAS ON LINE TRYING TO REMEMBER WHEN I SOLD MY U.S. STAMP COLLECTION AT A STAMP SHOW IN SAN FRANCISCO. A STORY APPEARED ABOUT YOU LEAVING ALBUQUERQUE AND GOING TO THE SAN FRANCISCO SHOW AT THE MASCONE SQUARE. I THINK THAT SPACE IS UNDERGROUND AS I REMEMBERED IT. I ALSO WENT TO THAT SHOW FROM ALBUQUERQUE. DROVE THERE IN MY 1967 GTO.
    THAT SHOW BLEW ME AWAY. UNFORTUNATELY IT WAS THE ONLY STAMP SHOW I EVER ATTENDED. IT COMMEMORATED THE FIRST U.S. TRIANGLE STAMP AND THE FIRST U.S. STAMPS. THERE WERE A LOT OF PAUL REVERE DRESSED DUDES AT THE PLACE.
    JUST WANTED TO CROSS MEMORY PATHS…

    STEVE

      PACIFIC 97. Yes, a great show. Did the passport with all the postal administrations there and stood in line for new issues each morning. Remember a presentation on the China Clipper plane and airmail service.
