The July to September 2015 issue of First Impressions is now available

The two feature articles in this issue explore the varieties to be found in the early Canada Post official FDCs and written exchanges between Montreal stamp dealer and FDC maker Joseph C. Rosenbaum and one or our honorary members Robert L. Markovits. Also from the Markovits archives are two Canada Post announcements pertaining to the 1935 Silver Jubilee issue. Also included are an unusual usage of an Eppstadt cacheted cover and a review of a book about U.S. cachet maker Dorothy Knapp’s hand-painted FDCs which included several Canadian stamp issues.

This issue is a few pages shorter than others in recent months, which reflects a lack of submissions. I would encourage Any members with ideas for articles are encouraged to contact Gary Dickinson about getting them into print. FDC topics that are of interest to you will probably be of interest to others, and the success of the newsletter is dependent on the willingness of us all to share information.
