Why are Scandinavian collectors going to ARIZONA next weekend?

The Stamp Collecting Report, I'm Lloyd de Vries.
Every year, collectors in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and 
Iceland hold a regional stamp show somewhere in Scandinavia...
EXCEPT when an International show is being held in the region. 
And this year, there's an International in Denmark in October.

So the American collectors of Scandinavian stamps pitched 
holding the regional show here in the U-S instead, and the 
offer was accepted. Nordia Two Thousand and One is being held 
in conjunction with Aripex, which this year is in Tucson. And 
on top of THAT, the American Philatelic Society is holding its 
winter event there, too, making it a three-in-one show.

A number of organizations besides the A-P-S are holding meetings 
there, among them the United States Stamp Society, and, of 
course, the Scandinavian Collectors Club.

And the world's most valuable stamp, a color error from Sweden 
in the 1800s, is being MAILED from New York to Tucson for the 

Registered mail, of course.

And that's stamp collecting this week. 

I'm Lloyd de Vries, CBS News.
