    Antiques and Collectibles; incl. Stamps; "..offering 30,000 items in a wide selection."

    Also operates Collectors.Org - "..the largest, strictly FREE information website for collecting clubs -- serving club leaders, their members and the entire antiques and collectibles industry. ... selected as the Offical Web Site for the Association of Collecting Clubs and the National Association of Collectors" (x) - Sponsorship advertising is accepted in all newsletters. (c.2001)

    "Some of the site features include a comprehensive Collecting Clubs Directory, Flea Market Directory, Auctioneers Directory, Club Conventions & Events Schedule, Directory of Collecting Web Rings, Directory of Collectibles Glossaries, Collectors News Service, Collectors Trade Show, Restoration Directory, Hobby Protection Act and much more."

    c.2008, "During the past five years Americana Resources has become a leading supporter of developing websites for organizations and strengthening a number of clubs and societies and associations in a variety of ways.

    "We initially developed, and for several years operated, the website serving the largest trade associations in our industry -- Antiques & Collectibles Dealer Association (ACDA), Antiques & Collectibles Show Promoters Association (ACSPA), National Association of Antique Malls (NAAM).

    "In 1995, Americana Resources created Collectors.Org, the website for collecting clubs and collectors. Collectors.Org was selected in 1996 to be the official website for the National Association of Collectors. Americana Resources acquired the National Association of Collectors (NAC) in 2002 (which was founded in 1996 by Harry L. Rinker, president of Rinker Enterprises, Inc, Emmaus, Pennsylvania and Jim Tucker, founder & director of Antique & Collectible Associations, Davidson, North Carolina.) Shortly thereafter, we founded a companion organization called the Association of Collecting Clubs (ACC) designed to work with the operation and management of collecting groups. The Collectors.Org website is the official website for both the NAC and ACC.

    "Since it's inception, the Collectors.Org site has become one of the most expansive information sites serving our industry. The Antiques & Collectibles show calendar is the most comprehensive listing on the Internet, featuring thousands of events worldwide and updated weekly. Our Flea Market Directory is the largest on the Internet. The Events Schedule features workshops, seminars, conventions, exhibitions, lectures, auctions and tours, also updated weekly. The Auctioneers Directory, Industry News, Appraisals Section and Restoration Section are all noteworthy. The Club Directory, consisting of over 2,500 clubs (over 4,000 c.2008 - ajw), is the largest on the Internet.  

    "TheftReports.com, launched in August 2000 as a spin-off from Collectors.Org, has the singular purpose of serving the industry by listing theft reports and providing theft information on how to prevent thefts and what to do if you have experienced a theft. The site will work to build stronger bridges between the professional associations serving the industry, and the law enforcement agencies at all levels..." ('404' c.2008) - ajw   8-(

    "APIC.ws or AmericanPoliticalItemsCollectors.com is the official website of the 3,000-member association supporting the collection and study of political memorabilia, American Political Items Collectors. A weekly eNews letter, launched in 2001, supports this site. Americana Resources also owns and operates club sites for the Millennium Collectors and the Calendar Collector Society.

    "Through the Collecting Clubs eNews letter we are providing information to the club leadership of hundreds of collecting clubs and societies, assisting them in making their clubs stronger, better managed and of more service to their respective memberships. Collectors.Org also operats a Collecting Club News Service that aids in the distribution of collector organization news to the various media serving the antiques and collectibles industry.

    "Strong collecting organizations mean stronger, healthier hobby areas and more satisfied collectors. It also is a vital ingredient in strengthening the entire antiques & collectibles industry. Thus, as we stated in the beginning of this section, although small, we feel Americana Resources has an active role in helping to shape our industry. "

    "Bravo!", ajw

    P.S.: "At Americana Resources, Inc, Rick has responsibility for all technology-related subjects. This includes not only the hardware and software used in the office, but also dealing with ISPs, telecomm companies and suppliers. He is also the one that takes care of re-wiring any lighting fixtures before they are sold (Larry isn't allowed to do this anymore after that incident with the blown-out wall outlet) and has the 'minor' task of doing all of the site layout, design and programming for the 19 domains owned and/or operated by Americana Resources, Inc.

    "Since 1966 we've been protecting prized collections from Autographs to Zippos and everything in between, from books, comics, and Disney collectibles to Waterford, X-Men, and yo-yos. And of course, we can't forget the very first collectibles we ever insured: stamps! "

    Incl. "Insurance plan for ASDA (dealers assoc.) members"

    " Our History (c.2012 website):

    In April of 1966, Horace Harrison - an avid collector and active member of the American Philatelic Society—founded Harrison & Associates to serve the insurance needs of his fellow stamp collectors.

    In 1983, Dan Walker, a fellow collector and friend, purchased the agency from Horace. A former Wall Street securities analyst and financial analyst for the U.S. Department of Transportation, Dan realized there were many other collectibles that would benefit from the specialized insurance offered by the agency. In 1996, Dan struck an agreement with the agency's carrier to cover additional collectible categories and changed the company's name to Collectibles Insurance Agency.

    In 2006, Dan the(n) sold the Agency to a privately held wholesale broker. Although, Dan is semi-retired he continues to play an active role in the company's day-to-day operations. In 2010, Global Indemnity plc purchased the Agency to further expand their specialty insurance services. Global Indemnity provides the Agency increased opportunities to market the program nationwide through agents and brokers. Today, Collectibles Insurance Services, LLC carries on the tradition set by Horace and Dan. We are committed to expanding our products and distribution to further meet the needs of collectors and dealers. "
