EXAMPLES OF CENTERING:

1917 Average - perforations touch or cut the design, or in this case the bottom frameline

1910 fine - perforations clear the design; Barely in this case, but 1910 is one of the hardest seals to find well centered

1912 very fine - perforations clear the design more comfortably

Getting to know the Denune's

There are Actually two John Denune's; Sr., and Jr.. Dressed for 1991 ALA Gala fundraiser in Columbus Ohio where dad and I provided a Christmas Seal display, attended by ALA Charperson Kristi Yamaguchi (olympic Gold Medal Figure Skater, and Dancing With the Stars Winner); She was ALA Chairperson again in 2008.

Dad started collecting Christmas Seals seriously in 1969, joining the CS&CSS, and over the years purchasing large lots from major dealers including Ray Mosbaugh, Charles Bellinghausen, Charles Lorenz, Robert Wood, Vernon Bressler, and Roger Sargent. In 1981, while I was on an hiatus from college, we began our Christmas Seal business. Dad is the collector and, and I (John, Jr.) am the author of our Christmas Seal pricelists, albums and websites.

We have both served on the Christmas Seal & Charity Stamp Society Board of Governors, and are past presidents of that society. The CS&CSS is an American Philatelic Society affiliate (#101), and a non profit organization established in 1931 by collectors to promote the hobby of Christmas Seal collecting. We have both served as volunteer editors of CS&CSS literature, and assisted writers in their exhibits, articles and literature projects. Both of us have written Christmas Seal articles for publications including the American Philatelist, Linn's Stamp News, and The Cinderella Philatelist, as well as Seal News, the award winning quarterly journal of the CS&CSS.
