La Grande Bourse (Great Exchange) is a meeting that brings together dealers and collectors in the fields of numismatic and cartophilia. If you plans to visit Monaco in december,  take note of this date: December 7 in the  "Espace Léo Ferré. 
One of the items that describes this meeting in the stamp is what appears to be an old postcard.  Its a view of the harbour with one of the now extinct jetty lights.
Jetée du North   (Ex  E-0842) - MONACO

And for a better view, here it is an almost identical postcard

  1. Hi Carlos,
    If you have some free time, I would like to introduce to you one of my favorite stamp websites, I checked out their Catalogue and found all their Lighthouse stamps. Simply go to Advanced Search, and choose from Motive: Architecture, Buildings, Lighthouses. Or you can type in the Title/Description: Lighthouse, and you will be shown the list of lighthouse stamps.
    I have checked out this stamp you have shown, and it seems that StampWorld does not have this one yet on Monaco December 7 2014. Maybe you can contribute there with this stamp if you like, as they are open to contributions from all over the globe..I’m sure they would be happy to receive any of your contributions as well.
