 As editor-publisher Michael Laurence predicted in this
 column Sept. 25, earliest-known-use covers for the soft-paper
 American Bank Note stamps are cropping up like mushrooms
 after a spring rain. Read this week's column for the
 latest example.

2. Refresher Course: Show your collecting pride with an exhibit
( http://www.linns.com/print/archives/20001113/refresher.asp )

 Every champion exhibitor has to start somewhere, and it's
 usually with an exhibit that is created out of a love for
 the hobby and a devotion to the subject of the collection.
 In Refresher Course, senior editor Michael Baadke describes
 some of the basics of creating a stamp exhibit. Perhaps
 the first steps you take toward creating your own stamp
 exhibit will eventually lead you to a championship of your own.
