Wisconsin FDC Cachetmakers by Douglas H. Henkle, AFDCS LM 137 [obsolete address]

      The First Day Cover Collectors of Wisconsin is an AFDCS chapter affiliate which principal area of interest is certainly indicated by its name. The group has a fine journal called "The Wisconsin Cover Sheet", edited by the irrepressible Hank Schmidt. But, that's not the purpose of this story.

      The June/July issue carried an article explaining that one of the purposes of the FDCCW is to promote the documentation of the work of all individuals, clubs, and organizations who have designed and/or produced, while a Wisconsin resident, at least one cachet which has been serviced on the First Day of Issue of any stamp or postal item.

      A listing of known Wisconsin cachetmakers is presented here. Additions, corrections, photocopies, and other information should be sent to the author who will arrange for the storage of the information. A volunteer is being sought to use this information to develop a handbook, slide program, series of articles, or other appropriate documentation.


      Updates: The First Day Cover Collectors of Wisconsin (FDCCW), AFDCS Chapter #29, was founded on 5-14-1977 and disbanded on 9-01-1993.

      The list of 27 Cachetmakers which appeared at the end of my above 1983 article has been converted into the clickable menu below to pages I will be creating for each one. The Cachetmaker's Wisconsin home city listed below did not appear in the original article and many have been updated with information that was not included originally or that I did not know about in 1983. As of 7/2019 the list has grown, so far, to over 100 known Wisconsin FDC Cachetmakers.

         He may not be from Wisconsin. Sometime before August 1985 I found an unknown reference which listed him as from Milwaukee and his First Cachet was 5-01-1924 #615 nip and his Last Cachet was #682 nip. The three pictured #651-57 covers are addressed to him in Grand Rapids, MI. He is not listed in the 1980 1st or 1983 2nd editions of "First Cachets" I own.

Olsen stock of Patriotics. I think I bought all he had left, both serviced and unserviced.

From FIRST DAYS #186, 30(7), 10-01-1985, p. 886:
      "Doug Henkle's project of listing all known Wisconsin cachetmakers was reported in the January One 1983 F/RST DAYS. The initial listing of 27 has tripled to 69 at last count. He urgently needs help to document and continue the project. Write to him at [obsolete address]."

      Unfortunately, I did not submit any updates to my first FIRST DAYS article before suspending my collecting from the mid-1990's until October 2018. However, I did publish updates in the following series of 1985-1993 articles in our local First Day Cover Collectors of Wisconsin, AFDCS Chapter #29's quarterly membership newsletter, The Wisconsin Cover Sheet (TWCS). I am in the process of finding all back issues, scanning them, and installing all scans here as part of this series of FDC display pages. I am also still searching for actual covers by all of the above artists, or scans of same so all of their cachets can be displayed in color on this site.
