Youngblood to Present Course at Milcopex 2010

            Noted philatelist, Wayne Youngblood, will present a four-hour seminar over two days as a part of the “Innovations in Philately” theme of Milcopex.  The workshop will introduce participants to all four basic forms of printing that have been used in producing US stamps: engraved, photogravure, lithography, and typography (now known as letterpress).  The classes will be similar to parts of those offered by Youngblood during the APS Summer Seminar and at other WSP shows as a pre-course prior to the opening of the show.

            At Milcopex, the class will be held from 9:00 am to 11:00 a.m. on both Friday, September 24, and Saturday, September 25.  This will allow participants plenty of time to enjoy the show’s bourse, exhibits, and other educational offerings.

            The fee for the class is $35 if remitted before July 31, 2010.  After July 31, the fee will be $50.  Course materials will be distributed, and those completing the four-hour event will also receive several items, including a pair of the Stylized Eagle self-adhesive linerless test coil stamps (Scott TD123), currently valued in the Scott Standard Specialized Catalogue of United States Stamps and Covers at $30.

            Reservations for the class, accompanied by the fee, should be mailed to MaryAnn Bowman, P.O. Box 1451, Waukesha, WI 53187.
