Online Exhibiting and FDC Courses

Gretchen Moody, director of education, at the American Philatelic Society writes to say a couple of exciting online courses are slated for early next year.

Janet Klug will be teaching Keys to Exhibiting Jan. 26 – Mar. 6, 2009.

Beginners as well as advanced collectors are invited to sign up to learn the critical steps of building a successful exhibit. Janet will cover the fun and challenges of exhibiting, with individual guidance in getting started, how to put your exhibit together, where to show, and other tips that aren't available anywhere else.

Cost: APS members $75 and non-members $105 (workbook is included)

Then More Collecting First Day Covers with Marjory Sente will be given Feb. 2 – 27, 2009. In this course, students will learn techniques for identifying many of the cachets found on classic U.S. First Day Covers and how to develop specialized FDC collections.

There's also a lesson is devoted to exhibiting your FDCs. A working knowledge of the FDC components, types of cachets, the significance of cancellations, the history of FDC collecting, and how to care for your collection is expected.

Cost: APS members $65 and non-members $90 (workbook is included).

To register for either or both courses, go to or call 814-933-3803.

It's recommended you sign up early since both classes are expected to fill quickly.
