WWII Patriotic Covers: Metered Mail - 1942 & 1943

        This is a selection of 20 patriotic covers in which the postage meter indicia contains a patriotic slogan applied by the meter. Some have cachets, others don't. Metered mail in the 40's was not as common as it is today and it was especially unusual to find pictorial slogans applied by the postage meter. The covers are listed by date. Please order by cover number.
        Prices are cheap! They're way under dealer prices and considerably under those in postal history auctions. 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, you can 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!
