More Than You Ever Wanted to Know About FDCs

If you would like to learn about FDCs from two experts, you can sign up for a free master class starting October 31 from Buckingham Covers. The course is led by Tony Buckingham, founder and executive of Benham Covers until he sold it in 1997 (to Stanley Gibbons, I believe) and now proprietor of Buckingham Covers, and Brian Austin, philatelic author and head buyer at Buckingham.

The course consists of 10 lessons, one every two weeks. It covers the whole range of British philately, and the eighth lesson focuses on definitives. Attendees will receive an email with a link to the course information on the web site.

You have the option of paying £10 for a Certificate of Completion and some other benefits, but the basic course is free.

You can get more information on the Buckingham web site, and then send an email to register. Although it starts in just a couple of days, since there's no time limit, I suspect they will take new students for at least a little while after that.
