The Penny Post

Carriers and Locals Society is a philatelic nonprofit founded in 1991. The group is dedicated to the issues of US private local and independent posts as well as the official or semi-official emissions; their forgeries and reprints; and their postal history.

The Society publishes an award-winning, 72-page, quarterly journal, The Penny Post.

According to a press release sent out by John D. Bowman, the Society is offering a complete set of back issues through 2005, with Volume 1 No’s. 1 and 2 reprinted, for $250 postpaid in the U.S. The usual price for the complete set is $355.

To take advantage of this special limited-time offer, please send a check for $250 (made out to the Carriers and Locals Society) to Martin Richardson, PO Box 74, Grosse Ile, MI 48138.
