Stamp, coin and postcard show is Saturday


---- — The Leatherstocking Stamp Club of Cooperstown and The Tri-County Stamp Club of Sidney, are co-sponsoring a stamp, coin and postcard show from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13, at the Holiday Inn on Route 23, Oneonta. Parking is free and there is no admission charge. All youth attending will be given free postage stamps.

The upcoming show will not only have dealers with stamps, coins and postcards for sale, but also the two sponsoring clubs will have tables whereby visitors can pose stamp questions.

The Tri-County table will sponsor a chance board whereby stamps can be selected at inexpensive prices for beginners and novices to the hobby.

The Tri-County table will also feature a DVD presentation of stamp collecting terminology to educate those new to the hobby.

The Leatherstocking Club will have many local covers, known as cachets available, including baseball related cachets.

The Leatherstocking Stamp Club meets monthly on the first Thursday of each month at the Tillapaugh Home, 28 Pioneer St., Cooperstown. For additional information contact Ellen Tillapaugh at or 547-5646.
