SOSSI Journal

Journal Issues from 1951
The Classics Corner - For The Record

The SOSSI Journal is the official bi-monthly publication provided to each member of the Scouts on Stamps Society International, Inc.  Members are kept informed of Scout-related meetings and philatelic events, and new stamp issues as they are reported.

Through research, members are continually coming across hitherto unknown facts about many of the Scout issues and these facts are published in the Journal. This has been especially true of the so-called classics issued during the early days of Scouting.

The SOSSI Journal has been assigned the International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) #1066-6028 as part of the National Serials Data Program, Library of Congress.  Material appearing at the SOSSI Website is © SOSSI unless otherwise cited.
