Hand painted FDCs by Bernard Goldberg ~ 1983-1994

        On this page you will find 183 First Day Covers and event covers hand painted by Bernard (Bill) Goldberg. They include commemoratives, regular issues, Federal duck stamps, airmails, sporting events, and inauguration covers, many with multiple cancels and combos. The black portion of the cachet is thermographed onto the envelope and the colors hand painted, often with vivid metallic gold and silver. They are all limited editions of between 25 and 145. Covers are listed by Scott number and also Goldberg number (when known) as "GB48".
        Please order by cover number. Goldberg covers are sold mainly at cover auctions and are generally not stocked by dealers. At recent McCusker auctions, prices ranged from $60 to $300 and higher. My prices here are way under typical 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!
