U.S. Philatelic Classics Society

The U.S. Philatelic Classics Society (USPCS) is a highly regarded and respected group whose members study the stamps and postal history of the United States from the Colonial era to 1900.

Up to now the USPCS was a “virtual organization” without a physical home of its own.

But thanks to the generosity of its members and others, the group funded a combination classroom/conference room at the American Philatelic Center (and American Philatelic Society headquarters) in Bellefonte, PA.

Dedicated last weekend, it will be known as the U.S. Philatelic Classics Society, Inc. Room and will also permanently house the Society’s cups and awards.

USPCS President Wilson Hulme said, "We look forward to philatelists from around the world gathering at the USPCS conference room for programs that promote philately, enhance knowledge, and share friendship.”
