De Vries Presenting FDC Course

AFDCS President Lloyd de Vries will be presenting an APS On-the-Road course entitled "Collecting First Day Covers" on January 25, 2018 prior to the start of Southeastern Stamp Expo 2018 in Peachtree Corners, Georgia (suburban Atlanta).

The course will be beneficial to all collectors from the beginner to the advanced collector, expanding your understanding of First Day Cover collecting in the following ways:
  • Begin with an introduction to the fascinating hobby of First Day Cover collecting
  • Trace the history of FDC collecting
  • Develop the skills to identify the components of a FDC
  • Appreciate the many different types of First Day postmarks, including unofficials, errors, and predates
  • Learn about the wide variety of cachets found on FDCs and how to identify cachet production methods
Cost is $45 for APS members and $95 for non-members (it would be cheaper for non-members to join the APS). Course information can be found on the APS website.
