TOOWOOMBA STAMP CLUB

The HERITAGE TROPHY

 

The Heritage Trophy is a perpetual trophy sponsored jointly by Heritage Bank and Toowoomba Stamp Club. It is designed to encourage collectors who may not have previously exhibited, and is adjudicated by nationally-acredited judges provided by QPC.

Each year's competition is based on a theme set by Toowoomba Stamp Club at the beginning of that year. The full rules for the Heritage Trophy are set out here.
