Micronesia ~ Stamps & First Day Covers ~ 1984-1988

        Federated States of Micronesia (Includes Chuuk (Truk), Kosrae, Pohnpei, and Yap), 1984-1988, Scott #1 to 66, C1-C38, postage stamps and First Day Covers. Listed are all the philatelic and postal items issued in first 5 years of independence: commemoratives, definitives, and airmail. FDCs are by Gill Craft and Micronesia Postal Service.
        Unlike the Marshall Islands and Palau, in the mid-80s Micronesia did not issue hundreds of stamps for collectors; there were generally five issues per year. Most issues were in sets of four stamps: one for local post and three for airmail (corresponding to U.S. airmail rates for three zones). The US Postal Service handled mail outside of Micronesia, so rates were the same as U.S. rates.
        My prices are cheap, well under dealer and auction prices. No big postage costs either. You, the buyer, pay only the exact First Class postage for your order.
        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 (please contact me for payment instructions). Send your order with payment to David Ahl, 12 Indian Head Road, Morristown, NJ 07960. Thank you!

Micronesia portfolio of first stamps and FDC Micronesia portfolio of first stamps Page 1 Micronesia portfolio of first stamps Page 2
Spectacular heavy blue vinyl portfolio (9.8" x 11.5") with the seal of the Government of the Federated states of Micronesia in gold on the cover. On page two is a block of the first four commemoratives for the Inauguration of Postal Service, Scott 1-4, and a First Day Cover of those stamps canceled July 12, 1984 protected by transparent Mylar. On the facing page are the first three airmail stamps, Scott C1-C3 and the first 16 definitives (1¢ to $5), Scott 5-20, also protected by transparent Mylar. This is an extremely rare item of which only a few were made for dignitaries and officials at the ceremony for the inauguration of postal service. I have never seen one on the open market. $50.00
Micronesia Ameripex card Left: These cards were made up by the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) Postal Service for Ameripex '86, apparently so the 5 stamps they issued for Ameripex, Scott 52 and C21-24, or the souvenir sheet, Scott C25, could be affixed and a first day of issue cancel applied. I was at Ameripex and managed to get some first day cancels on only the 22¢ stamp, Scott 52, but not on this card (I was holding out for a cancel of the souvenir sheet on the card, but the sheets never arrived in Chicago). Anyway, if you want the card, it's a nice very scarce curiosity, yours for only $3.00.
