Cover Announcement 

Individually hand painted First Day Covers with cachets

dedicated to the uniqueness of each state.

Plus...for the first time in the history of our hobby,

I'm pleased to present each of the major breeds of dogs

in one magnificent set - a Collins exclusive.

When this beautiful flag set was announced, I thought long and hard about how I could make it distinct and different from any other cachetmaker. At the same time, I wanted to ensure that each cover would reflect the individuality of each of our diverse states. What eventually evolved was thinking "out of the box" and what resulted was as American as apple pie. Because all of the dogs of America had never been featured on a set of U.S. stamps, and because all of the breeds had never been used on a set of First Day Covers by any cachetmaker, I decided that combining our wonderful and varied dogs with our incredible distinctive states would be a philatelic home run. I was right!

Down the road, this will become one of the most coveted and sought-after sets of First Day Covers ever produced. Dog lovers will consider this a treasure of the hobby, and many will pursue it on the open market. And the state-related cachets make it a wonderful series that could be a definition for the term "Americana." You will love it!
