The greatest benefit of membership is the wonderful camaraderie…but there’s more.
CWPS Annual Meetings
We sponsor an annual Civil War Philatelic Society Convention and Exhibition held at various national stamp shows across the country. The Civil War Philatelic Society Convention and Exhibition is the major annual gathering of Civil War collectors and features spectacular exhibits of Confederate stamps and covers.
CWPS Authentication Service
As a service to the collector, the Civil War Philatelic Society sponsors an authentication service for examining and rendering certificates of authentication on Civil War stamps and postal history. Visit the Authentication Service Page
The Civil War Philatelist
The official publication of the Civil War Philatelic Society is the Civil War Philatelist. The journal is sent to all members on a quarterly basis. The Civil War Philatelist.
The Civil War Philatelic Society is offering a $2000 scholarship for original research and analysis relating to the design and/or printing of a specific Confederate stamp issue(s), the Confederate Post Office Department, or an aspect of Confederate postal history. Additional information on each scholarship can be found by emailing Deane R. Briggs, Scholarship Chairman, at email@example.com
Ever had a question regarding a Civil War philatelic item and wish you knew someone who could give you an answer? Well, the Society recognizes this need and has established a “Mentor Program” whereby you can call or email a very knowledgeable Civil War philatelist and fellow Society member with your question.
