Stamps (Philately)/readers digest


I would like to know a estimated value of a readers digest first day cover collection , starts from April 23 1981 - June 14 1985 . It has certificate of authenticity. It was given to me and not sure what to do with it .

Hi Marcie,

Thanks for your question.

Readers Digest First Day Covers were compiled by a private company in an attempt to cash in on the popularity of stamp collecting.

The covers you mention have a list value of $1.00 to $3.00 on average.

I have been involved in philately for most of my 56 years. I specialize in United States Issues and Postmarks. I have numerous reference sources to research if I do not know the answer. I am organized and promise swift courteous answers. I am a member of the American Philatelic Society. I also have my own philatelic mail order business.


As I mentioned, I have been collecting philatelic items for most of my 56 years. I have several albums of United States issues (most of them are pages I designed myself) and I also have numerous albums of postmarks sorted and researchhed by state.
