What The Society Does
The CS&CSS publishes a quarterly journal, Seal News, as well as a large catalog of seal collecting literature.
Keeping Society literature current and making it more useful is a primary goal of the CS&CSS. Green's Catalog, named for it's author, CS&CSS member #2 Dick Green, was first published in 1930, and it remains the Bible of Christmas Seal® collecting. It is divided into 3 parts, US National Christmas Seals®, US Local TB Seals, and Foreign TB Seals. Raymond Mosbaugh wrote the catalog of Worldwide Red Cross Fundraising seals, as well as the All Fund Catalog, which is divided into sections listing US fundraising seals issued for causes other than Red Cross or Tuberculosis. Nearly all titles are now available on CDs, which save on international shipping and enabling anyone with a computer to print their own catalogs. There are many recently completed and ongoing literature projects, but many still remain.
Not all seal collecting literature is published by The CS&CSS. Information on more recent works like this are included in the News page.
