The July-September, 2013 issue of First Impressions is now available.

The two main articles in this issue deal with overprinted stamps, with the first one being Gary Dickinson’s review of the various ways in which FDC cachet makers dealt with the transitional version of the 1964 stamp used for air mail to the United States. The second article by Norris (Bob) Dyer presents earliest known uses of Newfoundland’s 1920 provisional stamps.

Shorter articles present a study by John Van der Ven of a general purpose cachet now attributable to U.S. maker Ludwig Staehle while Bruce Perkins reports some additional cachets by T.G. Wolstencroft of Kelowna.
