About the society
The American First Day Cover Society (AFDCS) is a volunteer non-profit and non-commerical organization serving the needs of first day cover collectors, cachetmakers, and dealers.
Founded in 1955, the society has a membership of nearly 2,000 active first day cover collectors, including hundreds of collectors who design and manufacture their own cacheted FDCs.
The AFDCS holds a national annual convention, ‘Americover’, maintains a historical archive, and publishes a journal, ‘First Days’, full of news and education every six weeks (eight issues a year).
