American First Day Cover Society
The AFDCS Court of Honor was created to honor cachet artists who have over the years contributed so much to the hobby through the beauty of their art. A different artist is selected each year.
The series used the Christmas theme, for which stamps are issued every year, so that the cachets can be completed in advance. The artists are given complete freedom
The American First Day Cover Society (AFDCS) is a volunteer non-profit and non-commerical organization serving the needs of First Day Cover collectors, cachetmakers, and dealers. Founded in 1955, the society now has a membership of nearly 3,000 active first day cover collectors, including hundreds of collectors who design and manufacture their own cacheted FDCs. to develop their designs. The AFDCS then reproduces the art on a high-quality envelope.
The series began in 1981 and the first artist honored was Ralph Dyer. There has been a new Court of Honor FDC every year since then.
Each cover includes an insert card with a biography and photograph of the artist. Printed on the reverse of each cover is the name of the artist and the cachet's number in the series.
The AFDCS holds a national annual convention, Americover, maintains a historical archive, and publishes a journal, First Days, full of news and education every six weeks (eight issues a year). There are many benefits to membership, including the Member Mentor Program, Estate Planning, and many informative books and pamphlets. Come Join Me as a member. Please eMail me for membership information and tell them that Carl Swain referred you.
