Our Credentials

We Are Members Of The Following Societies

There are many stamp/cover dealers on the Internet and there is something that distinguishes the good from the not so good. And for us here at Brookman's CoverSpecialist it is the stamp of the American Stamp Dealers Association whose purpose is "To Serve the collecting community in a professional manner with Integrity, Honesty, Expertise, Dedication, and Reliability". These are not just words that their members pledge when dealing with collectors, and or other dealers. You can feel confident dealing with an ASDA member who proudly displays the ASDA logo on their site.

There is a strict code of ethics that we as an ASDA member must adhere to. We believe in it so much that both Arlene Dunn and Bob Driscoll have over 50 years of membership in the ASDA, with Bob being a Past-President.

You have available to you at no cost, the ASDA's services should you so require them. You can contact them at 217-14 Northern Blvd. #205, Bayside, NY 11361. Or if you prefer you can email them atasda@asdaonline.com, or call them at (718) 224-2500.
