Yorkshire Philatelic Association

The American Stamp Club of Great Britain caters for collectors of the stamps and postal history of the United States of America, and United States Possessions, also the Confedederate States of America during the American Civil War period. We cover 'back-of-thr-book' material - locals, revenues, postal stationery, air mails, pre-cancels, in fact everything philatelic relating to the United States.

We welcome both new and advanced specialist collectors. Unfortunately because of insurance restrictions we cannot send exchange packets or books abroad, only within the United Kingdom. We provide the following services:

* Our Journal, The Mayflower, which usually includes a postal auction, Club news and articles on United States philately;

* Circulating Exchange Packets for stamps, first day covers, revenues and other back-of-the-book items;

* A New Issues Service;

* A Library containing reference books and handbooks covering most of the aspects of US philately which members can borrow for the cost of the return postage;

* An Annual Convention which is held in different parts of the country and includes our Annual General Meeting, Competitions and displays, together with an opportunity to meet other United States collectors.

In addition local meetings are sometimes held when sufficient members can get together.

And all that for an annual subscription of 10.00 with a once only joining fee of 5.00.

The Club is constituted as a non-profit making mutual society with only members participating in the trading activities of the Club.
