    Hi, I've been reading these forums here for quite some time. However, I've never posted anything until right now. I like how friendly everyone is towards each other here (unlike some other forums where a few know-it-alls ruin the fun for everyone lol). So, today, I finally decided to add this my list of favorite forums. Hi to everyone!

    My Interests pretty much include just about anything U.S. But, since that's a pretty broad area to collect, I focus on US airmail. Although I do have quite a few first flight covers, I prefer first day covers.

    I also collect non airmail US first day covers. I have a large Collins FDC collection, a pretty large Therome cachets collection. My favorite first day covers are by Curtiss Poormon.

    Anyway, hi to all, and I hope to be doing more posting soon.

    Hello Curt and welcome!

    I mostly collect used WW stamps, but started with U.S. and still have a modest collection in that area. I also like U.S. and WW covers. I am unfamiliar with Curtiss Poormon's covers/cachets. How about posting some of his work for a start?

    Hi Don,
    I am lazy so instead of scanning any of them, i just checked Ebay. There are a lot of good examples, just search for: FDC Poormon. The prices are high right now, but you can at least get an idea of his work.

    Welcome Curt52 nice to have you contributing. I saw the Ebay pictures you posted on another thread. The FDCs are very nice. Looking forward to seeing some of yours.

    Actually, the ones i posted in the other thread are two of mine. I have 18 Poormon covers now, and and am always looking for more. Not at the prices I saw on Ebay though lol

    Sorry I misunderstood the thread. I think the covers are great. I had no idea they were so expensive, I took a quick look on Ebay as well.

    Attractive art work, but too pricey for me!
