This huge Philexfrance 89 commemorative card from the organization's president bears a March 7, 1987 franking inside along with the 2.20 Euros French stamp referred to as "Liberty of Gandon after Delacroix." The event took place in Paris. The main theme was the bicentenary of the French Revolution; hence, we have that iconic symbol for freedom and liberty Marianne. However, if I understand correctly, this particular stamp was being retired and replaced with another version called Marianne of the Bicentenary (who had no eyes!) I'll leave it to the true philatelist to full appreciate the postal significance of all this. I can tell you that I did a Google image search and came up with nothing. That's quite a feat on the worldwide web. So I'm assuming this card was only given to attendees or members. It is substantial and of fine quality. It measures 5.75 by 8.25 inches. The bottom left corner is slightly curved; not a crease but an impression. The back cover does have a light crease. Overall, it's in fine vintage condition.
