Alex Cuesta wins Penny Black

Alex with John Davies and Auctioneer, Michael Thompson

Alex Cuesta from London was the latest winner in the free prize draw for a Penny Black, sponsored by Mulready Philatelics, that takes place after the youth auction at Stampex. The enthusiastic young collectors compete for 30 lots in the free auction using the points they have gained by taking part in the free activities in the Kids Zone. They all receive a draw ticket with the lucky winner picking up the Penny Black. The auction is conducted by the ever-cheeky Michael Thompson, currently President of the National Philatelic Society.
