  • Identifying Hard and Soft Paper
    Hard White PaperThe “hard white” paper was a rag content paper used by both the National and Continental Bank Note Companies (#134-181).  This is sometimes referred to as a thin to thick white wove paper on the 1870 to 1873 printings, and a yellowish wove paper on the 1875 printings.

  • Scrambled Indicia
    In 1997, the USPS issued the first stamp using a new technology called “scrambled indicia.” Indicia is pronounced /inˈdiSH(ē)ə/ and is the plural noun of the word indicum. In this use, it means “indication or token.”
  • My One-Page Exhibit!
    The American Topical Association announces the opening of year four of its successful virtual exhibiting program, My One-Page Exhibit, starting December 15 and running through February 15, 2024. The exhibit program is free to enter and open to all. ATA membership is not required to participate. Rather than offering judging or popularity votes, the program focuses on expression, storytelling and sharing. The previous three years’ entries realized hundreds of exhibits from countries around the globe. Many entries were submitted by ATA members giving the global philatelic family a glimpse of our topical and other philatelic interests. Submissions included exhibits from the United… Read more: My One-Page Exhibit!
