The April to June 2019 issue #39 of First Impressions is now available

In this issue, there is a lead article from new contributor Norbert Hobrath, a collector who specializes in Confederation issues describing a really interesting early use of the issue. John van der Ven continues his prolific philatelic efforts with an article on a very (apparently) short lived cachet maker and his accompanying research.

John also has a followup article on a previous discussion of cachets by Australian artist Alice Green, thanks to a connection to Australian collector Daryl Kibble facilitated by Gary Dickinson. Finally an article by George Basher giving a snapshot of how different FDC collecting was forty years ago by showcasing a small part of the work of Mel Baron.
