Reference publications

Are you researching naval covers or ships? The USCS offers a number of reference publications. The reference material includes information on US Navy ship postmarks, cachet makers and collecting naval covers. There are also a number of small publications (Data Sheets) that include material both about naval covers and cancellations as well as information about US Navy ships.

An example of the Data Sheets is one listing US Navy and Coast Guard ships that were named for geographic places in the United States. This Data Sheet was compiled by a USCS member. This Data Sheet is available for free download or for preview.
