Linns Stamp News American Philatelist U. S. Specialist Auxiliary Markings

Linn's Stamp News is the premier weekly stamp newspaper. It includes a wide range of articles of interest to general and specialized collectors of contemporary and classical stamps.

The American Philatelist is the monthly journal of the American Philatelic Society which has been serving stamp collectors since 1886. The APS is the largest, nonprofit society in the world for stamp collectors with nearly 50,000 members in more than 110 countries.

The United States Specialist is the monthly journal of the United States Stamp Society for the collector of postage and revenue stamp issues of the United States.

Auxiliary Markings (top right) is the quarterly newsletter of the The Auxiliary Markings Club (AMC) for collectors who are interested in the movement of the mails -- especially mail that had problems. The evidence of those problems are the markings applied to envelopes and packages as the mail was processed.
