First issue of StampEd publication impresses

I’ve been a bit slow about mentioning this, but the American Philatelic Society earlier this year released the first issue of its newest publication, StampEd.

StampEd is a quarterly publication the APS says is aimed largely at younger stamp collectors, and as such it’s available only online. I browsed the first issue a few weeks ago, and I must say I’m favorably impressed. There were articles about younger collectors and their interests, sure, but there was also a lengthy write-up about modern United States postal counterfeits.

Although I’ve been collecting stamps for roughly 30 years, and consider myself very much in the “middle-aged” category, I still found the publication interesting and informative and worth browsing.

The best part of all is that unlike the American Philatelist, the APS’s monthly journal that’s a benefit of membership, StampEd is free, and you don’t even have to sign up for anything to view the magazine.

What do you think of this new publication? I hope you enjoy it as I did, and I look forward to seeing what the APS’s editorial staff has planned for future issues.
