The American Philatelic Society will offer an On the Road Course January 26, 2017 titled “Mastering Postal History: How to Read and Interpret a Cover” (One Day Course). The course, by instructor Gary Wayne Loew, takes place just prior to the Southeastern Stamp Expo show in Norcross, Georgia (an Atlanta suburb).
The purpose of this course is to enable participants to fully understand their postal history collections.
• What is the story that each cover can tell?
• How to organize your covers into a more meaningful postal history collection.
• How to maximize the value of your covers.
• How to become a more informed buyer and learn what to pay for a cover.
The course runs from 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. (lunch on your own) and the registration deadline is January 7, 2017. Register early because class sizes are limited.
For the full course description, which costs $65 for APS Members and $105 for Non-members, visit the APS website. Some of the costs for this course are being underwritten by the Southeastern Stamp Expo
Note that the registration fee does not include housing or meals.
