Classified Advertising

Classified ads run in each issue. This feature is intended for collectors who are looking for help in finding items in their specialties or for those collectors who would like to sell or trade postal history. It’s an inexpensive way to accomplish those goals. It’s even less expensive for our Patron, Benefactor, and Sustaining subscribers. As a benefit of this level of support, Patrons get three free classified ads per year (up to 35 words plus name and address), Benefactors get two, and Sustaining subscribers get one. Word counts do not include your name and address, which are free. Query if you have ads of more than 100 words. Send payment to: La Posta, POB 6074, Fredericksburg, VA 22403. E-mail Joan at:
