Online Machin Course in June by APS

The American Philatelic Society is presenting an online course on Machins as part of the Summer Seminar series. The course is titled “The British Machins - Their Origins, Technical Aspects and Varieties.” The course is given by Steve McGill, an acknowledged Machin expert whose exhibits contain stunning material and innovative graphics. He has won several Large Gold medals, which is not easy to do with modern material.

The course will be given on Tuesdays, June 8, 15, and 22 starting at 4pm Eastern Daylight Time (21:00 BST). However, if you have registered for the course, the videos remain available to you indefinitely on the APS web site, so if you cannot attend live, you miss a session, or you want to review a session, you may do so at your convenience.


You must be an APS member to attend the class. You can join the APS on their web site. After that, you must register separately for the course, which requires a fee of US$35. 


REGISTRATION CLOSES JUNE 1, so act quickly.


You can join the APS on the main APS web site.


You can then get information about the Summer Seminar. Scroll down to see the courses, then follow the link to register.
