About Internation Match Safe Association

IMSA is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit association established to promote the preservation, education and study of match safes.

We have over 100 members from the United States, England, Canada, Australia, Scotland, Ireland, Belgium, Portugal, Germany, Japan, Israel and New Zealand. Any individual or organization interested in match safes is welcome to join.

IMSA publishes a quarterly newsletter with articles covering all aspects of match safe collecting, including history, manufacturing, provenance, pricing, counterfeit items, and much more. Classified ads are available free to our members for buying, selling, trading, requesting information, etc..

IMSA holds conventions with informative presentations, live auctions, buy-sell-trade opportunities, Show & Tell and social activities. Conventions are held in varying locations. So far, our conventions have been held in cities throughout the United States and England. At these conventions, our members are afforded the opportunity to see a vast array of match safes, to meet and network with other collectors and dealers.
