    In Jerusalem took place the F.I.P World Stamps Championship 2018. It's open the doors on 27th of May and closed on the 31. Three members of DMCS presented exhibits. Mr. Franco Rigo, Venice, the Contagion, the Quarantine, the Disinfection, the Hospitals. It is an outstanding exhibit. Mr Rigo changed the title from previous exhibitions. The exhibit was in front of mine (Prephilately and Foreign Posts in the Danubian Principalities). The third exhibit it is of Mr Guy Dutau. It is fantastic. The title is: French Letters Purified in Metropolitan and Occupied Countries. From the Origin to End of the XIX Century. My exhibit has one and a half frames of disinfected mail. All three got Large Gold. I had a great pleasure to see the exhibits and the results.

    It is a nice collection. Love it. Please be attention with the page "1787 CATTANO". According to Mr. Paolo Vollmeier this cachets are fakes. In "Bolli e Documenti di Sanita" published by A.I.S.P. at page 340 they agreed with Mr. Vollmeier.

    I just came back from Brasilia 2017. It was a very long way to there with 55 kilograms of exhibits. The exhibition was a very good one with 2800 frames. Many collections from different categories included disinfected mail. Some items were real gems. My collection of disinfected mail did well being award Gold.

    Our subject it is very interesting for the public. The organizers asked me to explain to young students about the topic. I did it five times.

    I was offer two envelopes from the end of 17th century sent from the King of Portugal to Brasília. both has what was described as chisel slits. I think that this letters where not disinfected. The dealer refused to let me make photos.

    Now I am back to the desk to make changes for the next exhibit, Jerusalem 2018.
