Unless otherwise noted, all First Day Covers (FDCs) are roughly 3.75 x 6.5 inches (No. 6 3/4 envelope) or standard post card size, White envelope, Cacheted, Unaddressed and in VF-NM condition (in my book, once a cover has been cancelled, you can never grade it as “Mint” condition, but some people do). Some listings are lots that include related items, such as specialty covers and/or plate blocks of the stamps on the FDC. Sorry, lots will not be broken. FDCs make unique birthday gifts if you can match the dates!

Most cachets are by Artcraft or Artmaster, but there are some others, as well. All covers and plate blocks of 4 come in glassine envelopes for protection. Please see the Condition guide for grading codes. To purchase anything, see the How To Order page.
