Welcome to my FDC Collector website!

This estate belonged to Gerald Thireau of Holyoke, Mass. He belonged to the following societies until he died on May 1, 2002.

American First Day Cover Society Membership # 8291
American Airmail Society Membership # 5579
American Philatelic Society Membership # 0110512

He was an experienced and detailed collector, with the exception of record keeping. He didn't have a computer so all extensive records were kept by hand and apart from the collection, so each piece of the collection has to be verified to see if it is still within the collection.

Within these pages you will find various collections of not only FDC's, but also some coin albums, various stamp albums, loose sets, stamp books and other treasures at hand. Cataloging and pictures are forthcoming, so items will be added as often as possible. An estimated 500 to 800 pounds of stamps are within this collection so keep checking back to see this estate collection as it unfolds.

This site is mostly for the members of the societies that he belonged to, as well as avid collectors.  Sending me your society number/informaion for verification will give you an edge over other offers with a final 10% discount after bidding is over, since there will be no pricing, but all offers will be entertained (as bids). Please no dealers need apply.

Thank you for looking!
