Collections: United States: First Day Covers  
I am constantly buying large and small collections and often have a variety of U.S. and Worldwide collections, lots, and accumulations available. If you are considering getting into a new area and would like a "starter collection" (whether small or large), let me know about your interest. Also, if you are seeking used binders or used empty albums to match what you currently have, again, let me know. Here are a few samples of collections. The listings below are included by happenstance. If you are seeking a particular country or type of material, please let me know. Payment plans are available. I guarantee your satisfaction.

Due to the low prices and variation in weight, shipping cost is additional for items in the Specials Collections listings unless otherwise mentioned. When ordering please include a note in the shopping cart comments section indicating if you prefer faster/costlier or slower/cheaper delivery so that I may more quickly quote the shipping costs and options for you.

Collections and lots are not normally sent on approval. If you have questions about an item, please inquire before ordering. Special return and refund limitations typically apply to such items. Please see the "Order Info" page for details.

Each item is one of a kind; orders will be filled in order of receipt. Payment by MasterCard or Visa suggested, but I will hold items for 10 days pending receipt of check if you prefer.

U.S. First Day Cover Collection 1948-1968: Collection of U.S. cacheted, addressed first day covers spanning 1948-1968, plus a few earlier uncacheted. I guesstimate that there are over 500 different -- it fills a large shoebox, so it must be fairly complete for the period. A few of the older covers have very minor discoloration from the envelope glue lines (typical), but overall condition is mostly VF. If you are a FDC cover collector or accumulator, you can hardly go wrong at about 5 cents per cover!

U.S. Cacheted First Day Covers Accumulation 1960s-1990s: Group of about 150 unsorted CACHETED addressed FDCs ranging from the 1960s to the 1990s. I see one as early as mid-1950s and as late as the mid-1990s, but it looks like most are in the 1970s-1980s. While most of the cachets are from the usual larger makers, I do see some from smaller cachet makers. Condition on almost all is VF. They are addressed, but are clean and nice. A great way to start or expand your FDC / cachet collection at a very low price.

U.S. Cacheted Unaddressed First Day Covers Accumulation 1960s-1990s: Group of about 925 unsorted CACHETED UNADDRESSED FDCs ranging from the 1960s to the 1990s; it looks like most are in the 1970s-1980s. While most of the cachets are from the usual larger makers, I do see some from smaller cachet makers. Condition on almost all is VF. They are 99% unaddressed (in case I missed removing an addressed cover), and are clean and nice. There is a tremendous range of issues and I see a lot of items that would easily sell today for $1 or $2 (or more). Some items have their previous price labels; lots of those are in the $2-3 range. A great way to start or expand your FDC / cachet collection at a very low price. This is also an excellent dealer / trader/ eBayer lot.

U.S. 1995-2008 USPS Official FDCs Lot: Group of perhaps 250-275 (more or less) official USPS FDCs -- uncacheted, unaddressed. All in pristine condition. All single stamps or sets of singles (the sets appear to be complete) on individual singles covers. Yes, these are very plain, but that is exactly the benefit -- covers such as these can be used to make after-the-fact individual cachet artwork (which often sells for remarkably high prices). Or they simply can be collected as the USPS products that they are. At less than 20 cents each, they are priced very far below original cost and only a fraction of their original face value.

United States First Day Cover Collection 1970-1983 ELLIS ANIMATED CACHETS (3 Volumes): Tremendous collection in three volumes. Ellis Animated Cachets are humorous, cartoon-like, hand-colored. They are scarce and seldom offered. Offerings of these cachets on the Internet are few and far between, and then usually just a few here and there. This is a comprehensive 1970-1983 collection of approximately 452 covers, including many scarce, in demand, and thematic issues. The total individual value if sold separately is in the area of $2200++!! Whether you already collect cachet makers, or want to get started in FDCs, or you are an eBayer who wants to triple or quadruple your money, this is a terrific opportunity! [Sample scans on request to serious inquirers.]
