Author: Robert L.D. Davidson
Length: 28 min.
Year Created: 1992
The U.S. Civil War was the result of many factors in a long process leading up to the division of the Union. As the Union divided, great changes occurred in the Post Office Departments of both the Union and the Confederacy. The North had to demonetize old stamps and issue new ones, while the South had to start from scratch, with Postmasters’ Provisionals holding forth until its first stamps were finally issued. These changes are reviewed in this program.

Author: G.S. Joseph
Length: 26 min.

This program covers some of the methods used to doctor stamps. Use this knowledge as you pursue your stamp collecting hobby.

Author: Svend Yort
Length: 28 min.
Year Created: 1991
This program reviews many of the real number ones of the world. Believe it or not, some number ones are in dispute because the catalogs list the lowest denomination of an issue rather than the actual first stamp. Or, two or more values were released at the same time. It’s fun to explore the circumstances and background of each issue to determine which came first. Travel back to the early years of stamp history and see the stamps that started it all.
