Event Title:
Geneva from the Cantonal to the Federal Post
Event Desc:
The birth of the Swiss Franc in Geneva was one of the most amazing processes in Swiss postal history. From 1843 Geneva had issued its own Cantonal stamps that used the same standard as French currency. The new Federal State decided on postal and monetary unification. The display shows exceptional letters franked at rates before and after the unification and during the transition period supporting the change of parity from 70 to 100 Swiss Rappen for 1 Franc of Geneva.
