Unitrade lists a Rosecraft or Artcraft cachet for a single stamp on cover for $2. Unitrade does not list multiples on FDC's. However a reasonable value for this cover would be $3. Note: the above scan is a stock photo as are all my scans for material after 1952. The cover you will receive has been carefully checked to adhere to the above grading standards, so while it (they) may not be exactly the same, it (they) will be of the same quality.
