The U.S. Cancellation Club (USCC) was organized in 1938. It is one of the leading philatelic societies devoted to the study and publication of information on obliterators used on 19th century United States stamps. The USCC is APS Affiliate #75.

We are an eclectic group. Although most of the members reside in the United States, we do have several members who live abroad. Our levels of knowledge and expertise range from the novice collector to noted authors and postal historians. We come from all walks of life, from students to teachers and doctors and engineers and those that have retired.

Because we are such a diverse group geographically, we do not have any one place that we call our headquarters. We stay in touch with each other and exchange information through the Club’s quarterly publication, the USCC NEWS, which is included with membership.

The USCC maintains a lending library of material for use by its members. The library, available from the Western Philatelic Library contains books, journals, auction catalogs and back issues of the News which may be borrowed for a nominal fee.

If you have an interest in the study of United States postal history and, in particular, the various obliterators found on 19th century United States stamps, then you should consider joining the USCC.
