Featured - The Extraordinary Stamps of Lundy Island. These stamps, issued by his Imperial Highness the unrecognized Potentate of Puffin, are the only stamps in British Postal History issued and used within the British Empire by a country which was neither a dominion, colony, commonwealth or possession - or actually a country at all.
And, 1960s UN Freedom from Hunger Series, all from the collection of David Saks, MSCS member.

The Memphis Stamp Collectors Society has been a charter, American Philatelic Society (APS) Chapter, since May 1963.
The membership is drawn from the metropolitan Memphis, TN area with members from Mississippi and Arkansas regularly joining their Tennessee associates.
Meetings, have been cancelled due to Covid meeting restrictions and our concern for the health of members and associates. We hope to initiate ZOOM, (virtual), meetings on a monthly basis.
Please check back for updates.
The challenge is engaging the younger generations and we congratulate a fellow club member for her innovation using stamps as a teaching aid.
The MSCS club would be happy to assist school teachers in the Greater Mid-South (Memphis, TN, USA) with the cost of using stamps in their school curriculum.
MSCS offers two, $150.00, Grant Application awards, with the opportunity to re-apply for a second semester. Please visit the Grant Page for additional information. Apply now.
