Stamps (Philately)/first-day issue stamps on envelopes


I have four "first day of issue" envelopes--in cellophane, not cancelled and in first-rate, pristine condition--part of, I believe the Liberty Stamps series: John Marshall (9/24/55, Richmond, 40 cents), Abraham Lincoln (11/19/54, New York, 4 cents), Paul Revere (4/18/58, Boston, 25 cents), and Susan B. Anthony (8/25/55, Louisville, 50 cents).  Could you please give me an idea of monetary worth and any other area(s) of value?  Thank you.

Sammy Parker,

I can tell you that the current catalog (retail) value for the First Day Covers you listed, if unaddressed, are $2.00, $1.50, $1.25 and $6.00 respectively.  If addressed, the covers are valued much less.
