About USCS


The Universal Ship Cancellation Society, Inc., (APS Affiliate #98), a non-profit, tax exempt corporation, (IRS 501(c)(3)) founded in 1932, promotes the study of the history of naval vessels, naval postal markings, and other postal documents involving the U.S. Navy and other maritime organizations of the world. Members of the society typically collect naval covers. Some members are primarily interested in cachets, some are primarily interested in postmarks, and some are interested in both. Some members conduct research in their areas of interest and publish their findings through the Society. Such reference material is then available for all collectors. Many members share an interest in naval covers as well as an interest in naval or maritime history. The Society’s monthly journal, the Log, contains a blend of these two interests.

The U.S.C.S. Log (ISSN 0279-6139), the official publication of the Universal Ship Cancellation Society, Inc, is published monthly.
