Understanding Multiple Frankings to Improve Your Collection and Exhibit
Many covers you encounter at dealer booths and online have more than one stamp. These covers, with multiple frankings, vary dramatically in their philatelic importance. ATA is delighted to present a three-part course on understanding and evaluating multiple frankings. The course will then show how to find covers with multiple frankings for your own collection or exhibit. This is an opportunity to add some important items to your collection, often at a low price. Collectors and exhibitors will benefit from the course content.
Our course is being taught by Damian Läge of Switzerland, the most accomplished thematic exhibitor in the world. He was recently chosen to sign the Roll of Distinguished Philatelists, one of the most prestigious honors in our hobby. He will share his research and insights in three sessions:
Saturday, May 6, 6 p.m. EDT, – Multiple Frankings in Topical/Thematic Collections and Exhibits: How and Why
Sunday, May 7, 6 p.m. EDT, – The Evaluation of Multiple Frankings: Great, Greater, Greatest – Learn to identify quality covers
Sunday, May 14, 6 p.m. EDT, – How to Find Multiple Frankings for Your Collection and Exhibit
*For those in time zones that make it difficult to attend the live presentation, the sessions will be recorded and made available to those who register for the course. Those who enroll will be able to watch the programs again, at their convenience.
Damian has won the highest exhibiting awards and has lectured widely throughout the world. His high enthusiasm makes his presentations both educational and entertaining.
In 2015, his was the first thematic exhibit to receive 98 points at an international competition (ECTP 2015). In 2020, his one-frame exhibit, The Maori Pigeon, one the Grand Prix at ALPE-ADRIA in competition with all multiple frame exhibits in all classes. Last year he won the Grand Prix at CAPEX in Toronto. He has been winning top awards since he began exhibiting as a teenager.
This course is the result of Damian’s research and evaluation of many covers with multiple frankings. He discovered that online sellers often have philatelically significant covers for sale at good prices, as their prices often don’t differentiate great covers from mediocre ones.
Damian Läge has generously offered to share his expertise in this series of programs. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn from one of the most accomplished philatelists in the world.
