New Cachetmakers Directory

AFDCS Publishes New Current Cachetmakers Directory — Free!

A new edition of the American First Day Cover Society’s Current Cachetmakers Directory is now available, as a free download for both members and non-members. It can be obtained by clicking on the image below.

Compiled by Betty Hundley, this is the first new edition of the directory in more than five years. It includes names, addresses, dates of the first cachets produced, the frequency with which cachets are produced, and other information.

The directory is especially valuable to collectors specializing in a topic or issue who want to obtain as many different first day covers as possible for a stamp or set.

A limited number of printouts will be available for sale at AFDCS tables at upcoming shows, such as StampShow 2013 and Americover 2013, the AFDCS’ annual first day cover show and celebration, which this year is being held near Cleveland. However, collectors are encouraged to download and, if desired, print out their own copies.

As the largest not-for-profit organization in the world specifically for FDC collectors, the AFDCS sees fostering and promoting first day cover collecting as one of its missions, and this directory is part of that effort.
