A BOOK REVIEW by Alan Warren,
American First Day Cover Society HLM 13:

CHARLES A. LINDBERGH.
50th ANNIVERSARY TRANSATLANTIC FLIGHT-
ILLUSTRATED CATALOG OF FIRST DAY COVERS
Edited by Hal Ansink


  • Hal Ansink has published the results of his 20+ year love affair with Scotts Catalog #1710, the 13-cent commemorative stamp issued in 1977 to mark the 50th anniversary of Lindbergh's historic solo flight across the Atlantic. His in-depth study of the cachets for this issue resulted in documentation of over one thousand covers, most of them illustrated in this catalog.
  • The cachets are presented in alphabetical order by cachetmaker, from A&A Associates to Zaso Silk. Of course there are, as always, unknown cachets and these are listed separately. Ansink has identified which covers are First Cachets, of which there are quite a few for this issue. Following the First Day Cover listing are separate listings of philatelic numismatic covers (PNCs), exhibition and show covers, and some related covers such as dual cancelled FDCs.
  • Two handy items at the end of the catalog are illustrations of the official first day cancels as well as airmail station cancellations, followed by two pages of unofficial cancels. The total number of covers made with a particular cachet is indicated when known. Color varieties of the cachets are marked, and each cachet is assigned a catalog number for reference.
  • This is not a priced catalog. Ansink excludes maxicards, presentation cards, one-of-a-kind combos or hand painted cachets, and similar collector memorabilia not normally available to the average collector. The examples listed in the catalog are first day covers. This is an exhaustive study and an important reference for anyone collecting this issue.
  • This catalog has 374 unnumbered pages, 8 1/2 by 11 inches, perfect bound with soft cover and privately published by the editor in 1997. This catalog should be in every collectors First Day Cover/Lindbergh philatelic reference library
  • The above book review first appeared in the December One , 1998 issue of FIRST DAYS, a journal of the American First Day Cover Society. and printed by permission. Additional information about this society can be found on my Affiliations page
