Features & Benefits
The Society’s official publication, CIVIL WAR PHILATELIST, is published quarterly and sent to all members. It contains original articles on Civil War philately as well as news of the Society and its members.
One of the important services available to members of the CIVIL WAR PHILATELIC SOCIETY is its Authentication Service. This panel of experts will issue a formal written opinion on any item submitted by a member for a nominal fee. Any authentication issue should be submitted to the Civil War Philatelic Authentication Service for formal expert review.
Each year the CIVIL WAR PHILATELIC SOCIETY holds its Annual Convention and Exhibition, usually in conjunction with a national or regional show. Anyone who is a student or collector of Civil War stamps and postal history or is interested in starting a collection of Confederate or Civil War material in any form will find that membership in Civil War philately’s national society provides distinct advantages.
