American Philatelic Society

Please visit our club website at Please visit our club website at!
We have been an active club since 1924. We currently have 65 active members of all collecting interests and meet once per month to share programs, auctions, ideas, buy, sell & trade stamps, and just plain camaraderie. Many of our members have extensive collecting, exhibiting, or speaking experience, and discussions are always interesting and rewarding. New and developing collectors will find an audience ready and willing to help with expanding one’s knowledge and enjoyment of the hobby.

Western North Carolina is in an interesting geographical location: we get visitors from the north during the winter, from the south during the summer, and many people who decide they’ve had enough of either of those climates to move here permanently! We urge visitors of any age with philatelic interests to join us, even if only for a short time. We may even convince you to enjoy our region full-time!


We welcome collectors of all ages and interests.
Dues are $10.00 a year and includes our bimonthly newsletter “The Smoky Mountain Philatelist” (view our latest issue) , or complete membership list that includes “what we collect” and notices about our meetings with urging to attend and share your interest with us.

NOTE: Until further notice we regret to say that all Deerfield stamp club meetings have been cancelled. In their place we've been meeting online via ZOOM at 2pm the third sunday of each month. If you are interested in participating (and hopefully joining our club), please contact Frank Wheeler at 828-772-0502 or by email at

CANCELLED - SEE NOTE ABOVE -- We meet at Deerfield Episcopal Retirement Center, 1617 Hendersonville Rd, Asheville, NC in the Blue Ridge Room of the Community Center (usually: e-mail an officer to verify for the particular month), at 1:30 pm on the third Sunday of each month.

Stamp Club Activities each month include:

A talk, exhibit, show-n-tell - with an auction every other month. The auctions have lots supplied by members and by the club, with no “hammer” premium, and all proceeds going to the provider of the lot. Sometimes there is a Silent Auction in conjunction with a program as well.

We have a club stock of worldwide stamps available at 5c each that encourages addition to a collection at an affordable price.

We also have current catalogs available for reference at all meetings.

December is our Christmas banquet, with no formal meeting.
