First Day Covers
A number of companies regularly design, print, and sell commemorative
illustrated envelopes or cards with hand-cancelled stamps postmarked with the
date of issue (cachets, to a philatelist)¹.
A few companies have made available cards commemorating the issue of this set of
American Scientist stamps. Neither Feynman.com nor Friends of Tuva are
associated with any of these companies and we don't endorse any of them, but we

The USPS has an online site that sells blank white envelopes with the
scientist stamps and a day of issue postmark. However, for some reason I
am unable to access this WWW site (using Mozilla as a browser) although I have
been able to in the past. Perhaps this is a temporary glitch and in the
near future we'll be able to locate and report the URL for their page.
