First day covers are the center of attention at AMERICOVER, the annual show and convention of the American First Day Cover Society. Admission is always free.
The three-day event is a World Series of Philately show, and the exhibits are nearly all FDCs. The Grand Award winners are eligible to compete for the WSP Champion of Champion trophy as the best exhibit in U.S. philately.
AMERICOVER also features the most FDC dealers of any show in the world, both in its main bourse and its Night Owl cachetmakers bourse. The latter is by far the biggest and busiest cachetmakers bourse of the year, as FDC producers showcase their latest efforts. There's also often a major auction of first day covers.
