Win the War 3¢ stamp, Scott 905, First Day Covers

        This is a group of 69 First Day Covers of the 3¢ Win the War stamp, Scott 905, issued July 4, 1942. FDCs of this stamp can be a collector's dream or nightmare. FDCs were made with cachets specifically created for this stamp as well as with many "generic" patriotic cachets. Both are listed in the Mallone catalog with no differentiation. In addition, there are many FDCs for this issue not listed in Mallone, so it is difficult to get a realistic count of the total number of different cachets. Many FDCs listed below were made in small quantities and are very scarce today. The covers below are listed in alphabetical order by cachet maker (when known).
        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 SwapMeetDave@aol.com 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: SwapMeetDave@aol.com). Send your order with payment to David Ahl, 12 Indian Head Road, Morristown, NJ 07960. Thank you!
