Show Cachet and Cancels


The theme of Americover 2016, to be held August 19, 20 and 21 in Falls Church, Virginia, is National Park Service Centennial.

In conjunction with the show theme, the show cachet (above) and special postmarks will feature Yosemite, Yellowstone, and the Great Smoky Mountains. The postmark designs, shown below, will differ each day.


Another show postmark will be offered for the dedication ceremony for the Soda Fountain Favorites stamps on Sunday, August 21.


Paul Johnson, who designed the AFDCS Court of Honor cover for 2014, created the cachet and all four postmarks.

A set of four show covers is $10 and will be available at the show.
