First-Day Covers

1988 Christmas Issue First Day Cover

Printers and stamp collectors often create special envelopes, or covers, to celebrate the release of a stamp. At the top, this 1988 cacheted cover reproduces the image on the traditional Christmas stamp. It was canceled on the first day of issue.

1989 Christmas Issue First Day Cover

Cacheted first-day cover by ArtCraft. Though the illustration reproduces the image on the stamp, a scene of the Three Kings is also depicted.
