Eighteen people showed up to play Stamp Bingo, and a good time was had by all. Either 5 (according to Rebecca DeCourley) or 6 (according to Dave Benish) rounds of Bingo were played, with fabulous prizes. There were also fabulous door prizes, as there are at every meeting, so make sure you come to learn and play, each and every time.

Twenty-five (25) people observed Al White’s presentation on Civil War Confederate philatelic issues and other materials. He discussed printers, the varying issues, counterfeits, and facsimiles. Denny Donnell then showed his collection, followed by John Marquardt presenting the amazing amount of books and brochures on Confederate philately (and more). Scott Ward also showed the beautiful art for covers. A good time was had by all.

The January meeting, with an attendance of 22, was a Show & Tell: Jean Walker showed 1938 Columbia covers, Dave Durbin showed naval covers, Rich Grant had autographed stamps, James Farley discussed engravers and designers, Denny had foreign stamps,  Dave Benish showed cancellations, including his “hall of shame” (heavy cancellations), and John Marquardt showed the Harris Stamp map of the United States, and more on antique sales and auctions, history, booklets, and obscure stuff. Precancels were also discussed and shown, and a catalog of bureau cancels.
