Club History: Membership is open to anyone interested in any aspect of stamp collecting. The club is Local Chapter #082330 of the American Philatelic Society. We are a growing and progressive club with collectors of varying interests. Our membership includes beginners to advanced specialists. Membership fees are $10.00 per year for individuals and families. A junior membership is available free to those between the ages of ten and eighteen.
The monthly meeting consists of members and visitors enjoying a short visit with each other beginning around 2 pm. At this time the Club makes available an American Philatelic Society sales circuit for members and visitors to inspect and purchase items. Members frequently bring material for trade to the meetings. If a Board meeting is called it will be scheduled to start at 1 pm. Watch our web site for information.
The Gulf Coast Stamp Club will meet in the St. Martin Library meeting room on August 3. A Board meeting is scheduled for 1 pm followed by the General Club meeting at 2 pm. Click here for a map. Dr. John Barrett will lecture on the 1856 Austrian newspaper stamp Red Mercury. The Red Mercury is the rarest of Austrian newspaper stamps. We did meet for a Board meeting but had no General Club meeting because of the storm.
Al Allegue, GCSC Vice President, submitted an article for publishing in Filatelia de Cuba December issue. It is a great article on an unusual historic event. Click here to go to the Member Activity web page and read the article.
