  Supporting New England Philately
  [ HOME ]



The Northeastern Federation provides a forum for the dissemination of philatelic information of importance to the New England area. We do this by providing a centralized list of stamp clubs and exhibitions. We also stage Philatelic Show every spring and support a youth program. Club application here. Bylaws listed here.


Philatelic Show is the largest annual show in the northeastern USA and is part of the World Series of Philately, as defined by the American Philatelic Society. Philatelic Show 2018 will take place on May 4 to 6, 2018 at the Boxborough Regency (formerly Boxborough Holiday Inn) in Boxborough, MA and welcomes the Bermuda Collectors Society and the Society for Hungarian Philately. The show exhibiting prospectus here.


Philatelic Show was pleased to introduce our new exhibit medals at Philatelic Show 2017. Manufactured by the Northwest Territorial Mint, these medals will be awarded at Philatelic Show 2018.



This program is designed to initiate youth to the hobby of stamp collecting, with the objective of increasing their awareness of the many countries of the world, their cultures and history. It is a favorite of home schoolers, as well as in-schoolers. For more information click here.


On February 12, 2015 the Board of Directors of the American Philatelic Society awarded the Twelfth International Philatelic Exhibition of the United States, to be held in 2026, to Boston. This is the culmination of four years of work by the Northeastern Federation of Stamp Clubs. For more information read the Linn's Stamp News article here.
