The October to December 2016 issue of First Impressions is now available

Our autumn issue of First Impressions features the work of six cachet makers, all but one of whom produced only a small number of FDCs. Nova Scotian Cyrus Miller produced small numbers of hand-painted cachets in the 1960s, while W.C. Thorne’s hand-drawn covers appeared in an earlier decade. Vancouver Island resident Angus McMillan produced a raft of patriotic cachets related to WW II but his only FDC cachet came after peace had been achieved. RCMP officer Ainslie Bond and stamp dealer John Lundberg produced only five different FDCs between them. An early Christmas greeting concludes this issue with thanks and appreciation to Robert Cole for his series of holiday cachets.
I’m delighted to see contributions from five different members in this issue, and would encourage all of you to share some highlights of your FDC collections with your fellow members. I would be happy to assist anyone in getting your favourite covers into First Impressions.
