U.S. Stamp Notes — By John M. Hotchner
I received several positive reactions to the Nashua (New Hampshire) Philatelic Society’s “original gum” show souvenir sheet pictured in the U.S. Stamp Notes column in the July 11, 2016, issue of Linn’s.
Linn’s readers Tom Kudzma, Mark Sommer and Ray Ward wrote with more information about the Nashua Philatelic Society’s output from 1981 through 1992.
Connect with Linn’s Stamp News:
Kudzma and Ward, who were involved in producing the souvenir sheets, even sent along some examples.
I want to thank them by illustrating two more examples: the society’s 1983 offering celebrating “missing perforations,” and the 1984 “certificate of authenticity,” which pokes fun at expertizing.
I see these Nashua Philatelic Society souvenirs every so often at shows in the retail stocks of several U.S. dealers. So, if you like them, be on the lookout.
