Envelope ( cover) and a stamp postmarked (dated) from the issuing postoffice on its First day released to the public.

What is a Cachet?
A Cachet (pronounced ka-SHAY) is the writting, drawing, rubber stamped, Computer Generated,Machine printed,etc. work of Art pertaining to the new stamp on the left front of the cover. 

Why do some covers have white lines on them?
We have whited out names & addresses on the covers to protect the privacy of individuals as most older covers were addressed & mailed to individual collectors.

How much is it worth????
 We have been asked for prices of individual stamps or covers and are happy to answer your questions, as below here.  But I cannot send out lists or write lists on thousands of covers or stamps or even cachet makers there are far to many.Check the sight for books and you should find prices to suit your needs...

Friday May 7, To the genealogy librarian ..........The stamp you mention was issued July 26, 1945 from Hyde Park, NY. on a First Day Cover with a cachet a single issue would go for $4.50 , a block of 4 on a cover is $5.50, and a plate numbered block of 4 is $7.50... These are book value prices they could be more depending on cachet maker. The single issue off cover in mint condition meaning all perferations are there and there is full gum on back, no creases or tears goes for about $1.00 each. Used about 50 cents...... Hope this info helps wish I could tell you their worth 100's or better but...Your email address was lacking a domain suchas @yahoo, Hotmail etc. So I could not answer you personally ....
