  1. Stamp Insider for September-October 2016


    The September-October 2016 issue of the Stamp Insider, journal of the Federation of New York Philatelic Societies, is online and available for free download in PDF format or viewing online with page turning. It is available in both PDF and HTML5-friendly format at:

    The cover story is Pickups for Syracuse by Ed Bailey, who reports on the Classics Pick-Up Trucks Forever booklet first day ceremony at the Syracuse Nationals car show on July 15.

    Part II of Postcards Got Out the Vote by Ruth Sabo examines cards promoting presidential “wannabes,” some of whom who have been relegated to the dustbin of history. The other half of the family — Alvin Sabo — shows inexpensive cachets that define the government’s Executive Branch in Covering the Presidents.

    Our series of views of things presidential will conclude in the November/December issue with in depth examination of campaign, inauguration, and memorial first day covers from the 1920s though the 1980s by Norman A. Cohen.

    Other articles include an event celebrating the 190th birthday of the Horseheads, New York, post office, a sidebar outlining its history illustrated with key covers, a review by Alan Warren of Gary Dickinson’s latest monograph — Philatelic Views of the Peace Tower in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

    In her Ephemera column, Diane DeBlois explores the postcard exchange club craze that peaked in 1911, while Charles Epting’s New Deal Philately column introduces use of the mails to promote WPA arts programs — the Federal Art Project, Federal Music Project, Federal Theatre Project, and the Federal Writers’ Project during the Great Depression.

    The featured video covers highlights of the Pick-Up Trucks first day of issue ceremony.

    Don’t forget that October is National Stamp Collecting Month!
