Show Bourse Chairman Named


The American First Day Cover Society, the largest not-for-profit organization in the world specifically for FDC collectors, has chosen Howard Tiffner, of Lyndhurst, N.J., as bourse chair for Americover. The 2013 edition of the annual stamp and cover show and AFDCS convention will be held this summer in Independence (Cleveland), Ohio, August 16-18.

Tiffner is also the bourse promoter for NOJEX, another World Series of Philately show, and for some 20 years, assisted Michael Mellone with his shows, including quite a few Americovers. He is also a long-time cover dealer, doing about six World Series of Philately shows a year.

"I know Howard will be a real asset to us," AFDCS president Lloyd A. de Vries said. "He understands both sides of the dealer-bourse promoter equation."

Dealers interested in participating in the bourse should contact Howard Tiffner at or (201) 933-9542.

Americover 2013 will be held at the Embassy Suites Cleveland-Rockside in Independence, Ohio, about 10 miles from Cleveland, on the weekend following the American Philatelic Society's StampShow 2013 in Milwaukee. Americover will feature meetings, seminars, a World Series of Philately exhibition, both a dealer bourse and the largest cachetmakers bourse of the year, a banquet, several auctions, a hospitality suite, a pre-show tour and a post-show dinner/entertainment event.

For the 22nd year in a row, the special Americover room rate at the show hotel is below $100, and includes an evening reception, free full breakfast and free Internet service in the guest rooms. The discount code is "AFD."
