Allied Military Government Collectors Club

John Hotchner in his U.S. Notes column that appeared in the Nov. 1 edition of Linn's is calling for the creation of a national group for collectors of Allied Military Government (AMG) material.

John writes, "Given that the AMG issues are important, popular and not fully covered by any other stamp society (though several have dabbled in it), I am moved to suggest that the time has come to form a national groups for collectors of this material."

He goes on to say, "Such a club could aid in uncovering and sharing information, in adding to knowledge on what exists to be collected, and helping members find sources to buy from and collectors to sell to, and in promoting the field to possible new collectors."

"Volunteers will be needed to serve as officers, to handle membership records, to create and maintain a web site, and to perform other functions, such as editing a newsletter, and perhaps to manage a periodic club auction," according to John.

If you are interested in helping get the group going, please write to John Hotchner in care of Linn's Editor, Box 29, Sidney, OH 45365 or e-mail
