615+ Crosby Cachet First Day covers - the merging of a number of collections and accumulations I have had over the past few years. The vast majority (95%) are the Crosby Cachet with the raised ink and the photo tipped in. The remainder are the raised ink Crosby Cachets but without the photo in the design.
Many with blocks of four. Up until the post WWII period there is less duplication than you would think - there being a different cachet, a different color, a handstamp cachet or a handstamp cancel or a block of four. After about 1946, there is some duplication (especially the several with 5-6 or more) but it is good and collectible duplication. Exceptionally nice condition overall, many addressed (typewritten, handwritten and pencil) and many unaddressed.
In the first photograph, the entire group is pictured. The subsequent photos show the two Famous American sets and the three Presidential sets. The final photos show some of the earlier covers until I ran out of photo space.
In the earlier years (to about 1945) there are very often several different types of cachets. 1st Set of Presidential Sheet Stamps - Complete 1/2 cent to 50 cent in blocks. All in this set are. 2nd Set Presidentials Sheet Stamps - Complete to 50 cent (no dollar values).3rd Set Presidentials Sheet Stamps - Missing.
