Long Beach Stamp Club Kids Korner (Booth #1064)

The Long Beach Stamp Club is the oldest continually active stamp club in Southern California.  We celebrated our 87th birthday in November 2013.

The Long Beach Stamp Collectors Club was organized in 1926 by a group of avid stamp collectors.  In 1928, the club became a chapter member of the American Philatelic Society and today remains a member in good standing.  The Long Beach Stamp Collectors Club was incorporated in 1953, and has been known as the Long Beach Stamp Club, Inc. since 1973.

In 1985, the Long Beach Stamp Club established a program for encouraging kids to become interested in stamp collecting as a hobby.  At this time our program is committed to having stamps for young collectors to collect and enjoy.  Among other activities, the Long Beach Stamp Club Kids Korner helps kids increase their knowledge of the hobby, and will we raffle off a starter collection that a young collector can use to build a beautiful collection.

Over the years, this program has grown so big that we now give away prizes consisting of stamp albums with stamps from around the world.  We have a "stamp drawer" and KIDS from 6-17 years old can look through it and pick stamps for free.  Everyone who stops by our booth and registers for the Grand Prize Drawing leaves with a stamp book with two countries and a profile of each country.

For more information, contact Lloyd Baumann at leb_dorbaumann1@verizon.net.

The Long Beach Coin Club (Booth #978)

The Long Beach Coin Club (LBCC) began in 1950 and has been fully active ever since.  The LBCC is a non-profit educational and numismatic membership organization open to all ages.  We promote and encourage the study and appreciation of numismatics and related subjects as a hobby for all collectors.

Our goal is to provide an organized outlet for disseminating information by word of mouth, speakers, open forums and written publications.  We are numismatic mentors, where we help new collectors through the maze of numismatics so fewer mistakes are made in their quest to collect or discover areas of interest.

The club meets on the first Monday of every month, and the agenda typically includes an attendance drawing, member Show and Tell forum, current updates on local and far-reaching numismatic events, open club business matters, an educational presentation (with speaker), club auction and a club raffle.  Meetings are held at 7 p.m. sharp at the Millikan High School Cafeteria, 2800 Snowden Ave. in Long Beach.  Our mailing address is: Long Beach Coin Club, P.O. Box 8101, Long Beach, CA 90808.

The Long Beach Coin Club is a dues-paying member of the American Numismatic Association (ANA), California State Numismatic Association (CSNA) and Numismatic Association of Southern California (NASC).

The LBCC has a booth (#978) at the Long Beach Expo, where we help show visitors by giving them detailed information on all forms of numismatics and directing visitors on the large bourse floor.  We can direct an Expo visitor to a numismatic organization (coin club) in their area within California.

Last, the LBCC sponsors and judges an educational display forum at the Expo.  LBCC members and members of other coin clubs within California can participate, and the winners will be well-rewarded monetarily for their efforts.  These displays attract many Expo visitors and give them ideas for their own collecting futures.

We thank the Expo promoters for their long-time support and backing of our coin club.

- Howard Feltham, President of the LBCC
