Patriotic Postal Covers ~ WWII Events 1939-1941

        This is a group of 47 covers commemorating specific war events of 1939-41. Most of the major cachet-makers were not active until 1944 and 1945, so it is very difficult to find covers for specific events in the early years of the war. Many of these covers were made by individuals for themselves; they are one of a kind and, of course, are very scarce today. They are listed below in date order.
          Please order by cover number. Prices are cheap! They're way under dealer and auction prices. All covers will be sent by first class or Priority Mail. You, the buyer, pay only the exact postage plus 50c per order for packaging and handling.
       To make sure you get what you want, e-mail me at and I'll set aside the items you want and ship them upon receipt of your check or money order. I also accept Pay Pal (pay to my account: Send your order with payment to David Ahl, 12 Indian Head Road, Morristown, NJ 07960. Thank you!
