The United States Stamp Society (USSS) is a “non-profit” volunteer-run association of collectors devoted to the study of postage and revenue stamped paper produced for use in the United States and U.S. administered areas. Once concerned exclusively with the production of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, the USSS has expanded its coverage to all United States issues regardless of printer.
Fourth Bureau Issues Committee Presention at The Collectors Club “Society Series”
Rod Juell presented “United States Fourth Bureau Era” at The Collectors’ Club webinar meeting on July 14. The two part program began with a high level over-view of all of the stamps issued during the years 1922 through 1932. This set the context for the second part of the program – a “sneek-peak” at a new book to be published next year by the United States Stamp Society, celebrating the Fourth Bureau Issue during its centennial year. This book, currently in the final stages of layout, is expected to be the definitive work on these stamps for a generation to come.
