About the Club

Stamp collecting has a long and rich history. Once just a children’s hobby, it has grown to become a pastime enriching the lives of children, adults who casually accumulate interesting stamps and envelopes and avid philatelists who study the history, production and use of all things relating to the worldwide delivery of messages and parcels.

The Lincoln Stamp Club is a group of forty or so individuals of all ages and interests who find the club, with its meetings, conversations and the other benefits of membership, an aid to enriching their hobby, their passion for philately.

So … welcome to the Lincoln Stamp Club. Check out the News about our meetings and events, see if the Resources inform your collecting, consider Membership or Contact us with a question. We’re glad that you share this passion for philately!

LINPEX 2013 Recognized Emancipation Proclamation’s Sesquicentennial

In honor of the one-hundred-fiftieth anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln’s decision to issue the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863 , the Lincoln Stamp Club released a special commemorative envelope. This show cover featured the United States Postal Service’s new Emancipation Proclamation Sesquicentennial stamp, a show cancel using broken chains to symbolize the freedom of the slaves released from bondage by the proclamation, and a cachet. The cachet presents a profile of President Lincoln, based upon the statue by Daniel Chester French that stands to the west of Nebraska’s State Capitol in Lincoln,Nebraska. To the left of the president’s profile is an excerpt from the text of the proclamation:

… all persons held as slaves … shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free ….
