Unitrade lists a Rosecraft or Artcraft cachet for a single stamp on cover for $2. Unitrade does not price combination FDC's of this issue. $3 would be a more reasonable value for this cover. 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.
