Welcome to the Universal Ship Cancellation Society. Since 1932, our organization has been dedicated to collection and study of mail and postmarks from ships—all kinds of ships, military and civilian, from all over the world. Naval history is a natural interest for members, but many also enjoy collecting or creating cachets that are often added to naval covers. There are many aspects to our hobby, and a variety of crossover interests.

Please take a look at our website—check out some of the articles, data sheets, and our monthly journal (The Log). We’re also proud of our Naval Cover Museum website. Enjoy your visit
