Invitation to Join
Cover collecting is booming in Australia. Recently, single, hand painted FDCs by Eric Ogden and Jack Peake have sold for $1,800 and $2,500 respectively.
The Australian Cover Society (ACS) was formed on 24 May 2002 to represent cover collectors and promote their hobby. It was registered under the Associations Act (Victoria) on 24 September 2002. At present it has about 170 members.
The Cover Collector, Journal of the ACS is published three times a year. This contains important, new and definitive articles about the producers of Australian philatelic covers, both historical and present day. The Cover Collector is professionally typeset and printed. It has become Australia's premier source of information on covers. Back issues are available here.
