Postage Stamp Day: Severín Zrubec (1921 – 2011)

Date of Issue : 5 December 2014

JUDr. Severín Zrubec (* Lúčnica nad Žitavou, November 5, 1921 – † Bratislava, March 11, 2011) was a successful exhibitor, journalist, association member, and a member of home and foreign juries assessing exhibits. He took part in organised philately for more than fifty years.

The stamp is dominated by his portrait and autograph. Zrubec’s first gold medal awarded at the World Postage Stamp Exhibition PRAGA 1962 extends over the right coupon, while a section of the emblem of the Society of St. Gabriel, he co-founded (1962), is depicted on the left one. FDC includes a postal stationery (J. Fándly, 1991 from Museum of Book Culture) issued by the Union of Slovak Philatelists and sent to his address.
