55 U.S. Bicentennial Covers in 3 Gorgeous Albums ~ 1976-81
55 U.S. Bicentennial Covers in 3 Gorgeous Albums ~ 1976-81 These three gorgeous large albums in this lot provide a comprehensive history of the U.S. from the “shots heard round the world” in 1976 to the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown in October 1781. Each year has a 2-page introduction followed by 9 or 10 events, each on 2 pages with a corresponding historic philatelic cover bearing appropriate stamps canceled on the 200th anniversary of the event. At the end of each year is a map showing all of the key events.

The limited edition covers are steel engraved by Artcraft on oversize 7½" premium ivory linen envelopes for the Westport Collectors Society. The covers include ones with stamps and cancels from the U.S. as well as foreign countries such as France, Spain, Canada, and Great Britain. Each cover has a stiff insert with information about the stamps on the cover and the cancellation. Along with the event covers, the albums contain several First Day Covers (issue day of the stamp), which dealers sell for $5.00+ each.

The 10" x 11½" albums have heavy red vinyl covers. Each album has 46 Mylar-covered oversize pages covering two years of history. The three albums packaged in a shipping carton weight 14 pounds. I charge only for the exact cost of the carton and postage.

These albums are a fantastic way to learn about the history of our country. Now they can be yours at a fraction of the 1976-81 issue price. Yours for only $69.95!
