Patriotic Postal Covers ~ WWII Events 1945

        This is a group of 191 covers by Fluegel, Fidelity, Linto, Staehle, Boone, and others commemorating specific war events of 1945, not just covers canceled in 1945 that many dealers promote as 1945 patriotic covers. Between January and September 1945, more than twice the number of patriotic event covers were issued than in the previous three years. As new Allied victories were announced, more cover makers joined the rush to make event covers. Some were very good; others were terrible. Below, you'll find a selection of the very best event covers from 1945, many of which 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 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!

Return Receipt signed by (or for) MacArthur in pencil in 1962. Spectacular! SOLD
C. Sturgill hand painted
E5003. Hand-drawn and hand-painted oversize 7.5" cover by C.
