"Weird" FDCs Presentation Oct. 16

A first day cover may be just a stamp and postmark on an envelope, with maybe a design on the envelope, but FDCs can be so much more. Lloyd de Vries will present some of those possibilities live on Zoom on Sunday, October 16, at 8:00 pm EDT, in a program titled "Weird Stuff FDCs." It will be offered afterward on the American First Day Cover Society's YouTube Channel.

De Vries recently presented some of his collection in an exhibit at the Great American Stamp Show 2022, where it won a large silver medal. It includes FDCs with moving parts, materials seldom used in FDCs, and unusual artistic techniques. Shown on the right is a real cover cover.

The president of the AFDCS, de Vries writes the first day cover column for Linn's Stamp News and manages The Virtual Stamp Club, a philatelic news and information website. Before retirement, he was a writer-producer for network radio, television and website news operations: ABC, CBS, NBC, NPR. He also hosted and produced a nationally-syndicated philatelic radio feature for CBS News from 1997 to 2017.
