THE COLLINS BOOK

 

In 1998 I wrote a book about my first twenty years (1978 to 1997) as a cachetmaker. It is 340 pages with many photos (some in color) and an illustrated catalog portion showing all of my cachets up to 1997. Much of the content is about our family cachetmaking business, my adventurous travels in pursuit of unique First Day postmarks, and my insights into the First Day Cover hobby. There is a fair amount of family background, my childhood years, and my tour in the United States Air Force. Itís available in hard or soft cover, and Iíll be happy to send you information on it.
