A stamp-filled August

The month of August always seems to be a busy one for collectors.

The American Philatelic Society is hosting its annual APS Stampshow Aug. 11-14 in Columbus, Ohio, and the U.S. Postal Service will offer plenty of new stamps and postal cards in August. You’ll find information about these upcoming issues in this month’s newsletter.

We also have reports about recent first-day ceremonies in Missouri and Minnesota, and special features that look at stamps and the Internet, and a history of stamp booklets.

Happy collecting!
