Stamps (Philately)/First Day Covers

Advertisement


Question
I have I believe every US First day cover in excellent condition from Jan 17th 1956 thru Oct 1963.
Any approximation on the value?
Bruce

Answer
Unfortunately Bruce, the FDCs from this period are very common and the market is weak.  If the covers are addressed, but with cachets, you might get 10c each for them from a dealer.  If cacheted AND unaddressed, you might get 25c each.  If they have NO cachets, they are worth about 5c each (or less).  Sorry for the bad news.
