How is the best way to sell FDIC's today ?
I have maybe 500 from the 40's to 70's.
Any thoughts would be appreciated :smile:

    Do any have unusual cachets? Any "handpainted" cachets? Those may have some marketability. Mass produced, run of the mill cachets, addressed FDCs, and FDCs with no cachets are likely of little value.

    All glory is fleeting.

    Perhaps I can give them to the boys and girls club?

    I was thinking more along the lines of an old folks home.

    If they have the high values of the set, they can be sold as used stamps and nothing else. A
    Those high values are not used much these days on packages with the way the post office
    prints out the stickers with the price on it once the pkg is weighed.
