Elvis Honored By The United Nations
Each year there is a special event for the philatelic community. This event occurs in different locations around the world each year, and is attended by many international guests as well as locals from the host country. The “World Philatelic Exhibition” is always a huge hit for people of all ages.
From May 27-June 3, 2006, the exhibition was held in Washington, DC. It was hosted by the United States Postal Service, the Smithsonian National Postal Museum, the American Philatelic Society, and Stamp Camp USA, with support from World Columbian Exposition. Special events were geared for young people in particular and novice collectors, to help draw them into the wonderful world of stamp collecting.
In celebration of the 2006 Philatelic Exhibition, the United Nations issued a stamp sheet that honored Elvis Presley. The sheet measures 8 ½ x 11 inches. The United Nations only printed 500 copies of this particular stamp sheet. If you would like to add this UN Elvis stamp sheet to your collection, you can find it at Stamp Center!
