The 74th Salon Philatélique d'Automne in Paris organized by the CNEP (4-8.11.2020) CANCELED due to the HEALTH CRISIS
Having no visibility as to the health rules that will be imposed by the government authorities to allow it to open to the public in November, the CNEP (Chambre Syndicale des Experts et Négociants en Philatelie) has decided to cancel its 74th Autumn Philatelic Fair. in Paris, initially scheduled for November 4-8, 2020.
As a result, the early sale of the "2020 YEAR OF DE GAULLE" postage stamps and the "First Day of Issue" cancellations of the Salon Philatélique d'Automne in Paris, were exceptionally processed from the Imprimerie des Timbres-Poste in Boulazac.
