​​As you read these words our members are planning the rest of our 2019 auction season (filling fast) and the great events scheduled for 2020, with some planning even further ahead. The Whitman Coin & Collectibles Expos in Baltimore are three of the most dynamic shows of the year. If you act quickly (by September 18) you can consign to the next one, coming up fast in November. In addition to regular attractions, the Colonial Coin Collectors Club will have its annual meeting—well worth investigating.

​I have always loved encased postage stamps. When I was a teenager I began to study them, seeking biographies of the various merchants. As time went on I helped form several major collections, including for Jim Ruddy and, in part for John J. Ford, Jr. With Mike Hodder taking the lead, I was co-author of The Standard Catalogue of Encased Postage Stamps published in 1989. My gosh, that was 30 years ago! The book was a best seller and has been out of print for quite a few years.
