AFDCS Donates $5,000 to Boston 2026 International Show

The American First Day Cover Society has donated $5,000 to Boston 2026 World Stamp Show, the next internationally-sanctioned stamp collecting exposition in the United States. The contribution was approved in a unanimous vote of the AFDCS Board of Directors.

Leaders of Boston 2026, the American Philatelic Society and the AFDCS have been working toward making first day covers a separate class for exhibits at an international show. Currently, FDCs are part of the "Other" catch-all class.

"We want to send a message that the AFDCS is a major player in the hobby, not just another organization," said AFDCS board member Foster Miller, who proposed the donation. "We also want to send a message to the international stamp community that first day covers are important."

Boston 2026 World Expo takes place May 23-30, 2026, at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center. Full show details may be found at boston2026.org and on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
