AFF cover

Three times.

This cover marks the 40th anniversary of the Asociacion Filatelica de Filipinas.

Thrice the name of the club is given (hey, wait a minute, that's FILIFINAS in one of the three!), thrice the "40th Anniversary" and thrice the years "1925 1965" as shown in the cancellation and cachets.

(The AFF was organized on May 10, 1925, by Don Joaquin Ortiz, who edited the first philatelic magazine in the Philippines, Revista Filatelica Filipinas, which became the official organ of this club.)
