APS Educational Course
"U.S. Bank Note Company Issues: 1870-1890"
by Clark Frazier.
The American Philatelic Society
is again offering an educational course in Southern California.
This two-day course, U.S. Bank Note Company Issues: 1870-1890, will be taught by Clark Frazier immediately prior to the show on Wednesday and Thursday, October 3 and 4. This will take place in the Catalina D room at the show hotel.
Imagine the complexity of stamp issues printed by three different printing companies over a 20-year period. Also, major changes in paper production technology occurred during that period, not necessarily coinciding with the contract periods, a source of major confusion among catalog producers and collectors. You will learn identification of design changes including secret marks and re-engraving, paper types from hard to soft, grills and special printings. We will also touch on current controversies, new research, and will demonstrate expertizing techniques for identifying Bank Note stamps. This is an intermediate-level course but can accommodate beginners at the instructor’s discretion.
The fee for this course, $35 for APS Members and $50 for Non-members, has been sharply reduced thanks to the generosity of the Philatelic Society of Los Angeles. The PSLA is graciously sponsoring this course in memory of A. L. "Toby" Tobias.
Registration and prepayment of the fee is mandatory.
Further details and a preregistration form are available
on the American Philatelic Society website.
