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, variations in weight, and different mailing methods, distances, and destinations, 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.

Appears to be mostly complete sets (or singles) of highly topical and attractive issues. The original purchaser paid around $5-6.00 per cover or around $300!!!! Most include informational card about each stamp issue subject. All in perfect condition. Offered at an absurdly low price, less than 60 cents per cover!!

About half the covers are 1993-1997 and half from 1998. Also includes the ever-popular Inverted Jenny gold replica. Many highly topical and attractive stamp issues. I believe that the original purchaser paid around $6.00 per cover = about $450!!!! Includes informational card about each stamp issue subject.

U.S. 1982 Birds and Flowers First Day Covers: Scott # 1953-2002 Complete set of 50 Fleetwood multicolor cacheted unaddressed first day covers. A handsome and desirable set, VF. Retail value is $147. (Old #40205)


Scott #2286-2335 1987 North American Wildlife First Day Covers: Fleetwood / National Wildlife Foundation Complete Set: Scott #2286-2335 [1987 22c North American Wildlife] Complete set of 50 Fleetwood multicolor cacheted, unaddressed first day covers, official for the National Wildlife Federation. The cachet designs were (originally) painted by well-known wildlife artist Don Balke -- the paintings are very detailed; Balke is a master of this subject and really does get it right (a lot harder than many people realize). Making 50 different paintings under time pressure for a stamp issue is no small feat! A handsome and desirable set, VF, perfect condition, fresh and clean. Retail value is right around $90 for this particular set.

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!
