The annual BALPEX show was held this past weekend, and contributors to this site and ARA members were well represented in the competetive exhibits:
Frank Sente received a Vermeil for his 1c Documentary Battleship exhibit, as did Len McMaster for his 1c Franklin exhibit.
Bob Hohertz received the Single Frame Grand for his 1898 stamped paper exhibit.
The other ARA winner was Mark Banchik for his Vera Cruz Occupation (1914) Revenues. He received the Revenue and Reserve Grand for his exhibit.
Congratulaitons to all and I hope we can post some highlights on this site of these exhibits, though you've already had a peak of some of Frank's and Bob's material.
