Celebrating National Stamp Collecting Month 2022

October means Celebrating National Stamp Collecting Month 2022!  There are several new stamps being introduced this month!  There is a new stamp celebrating Kwanzaa, Women Cryptologists of World War II, and Hanukkah. In addition the Snowy Beauty Stamps new booklet arrives this week; I’m showing its image in the blog post title card today.

For our new email blog subscribers, I’m including this as a look-back from my blog post last year. I still love the art work for it Celebrating National Stamp Collecting Month (October 2, 2021, blog post #2130).

October 2021 National Stamp Collecting Month

In addition to the new stamps I’m mentioning in today’s post, it is fun seeing this set of Stamp Collecting Month Souvenir Cards 1981 to 1984.

This is from Mystic Stamp Company, M12363, National Stamp Collecting Month Souvenir Cards, (from 1981 to 1984 by USPS.

They were special souvenir cards by the USPS when it introduced National Stamp Collecting month – with a card each year from 1981 to 1984.  Although it is showing them currently sold out, I like seeing they are referenced and can go onto my list of “would like to get some day”.

There are two items I’m wanting to be sure to  mention. First there is a new members free gift offering this month over at the American Philatelic Society. And secondly, they have their National Stamp Collecting Month Ideas page. It includes their listing of valuable resources. 

Before closing, this reminder, the Post Office is closed tomorrow with Federal Holiday observing Columbus Day 2022. I’m looking forward to writing a few letters to queue up to go out into the mail on Tuesday!
