Scarce Salvation Army US FDCs

Some Salvation Army United States FDCs were issued in very limited edition, for example handpainted cachets. R. Dyer’s handpainted FDC (SA 4.65) picturing a female salvationist is seldom seen on auctions and is a much sought after cover design. Similarly, the D.E. Crist cahcet (SA 4.48 – also named as W.K. Smith in the SA catalogue) seems to be a rare cachet. It was seen sold on Ebay in 2016 for > $100.  DE Crist was an active cachet maker during the 1960s era. I’ve seen these covers just twice on Ebay the last couple of years. I also list a couple of other US cachet that are rarely seen; the Pennant cachet with the Salvationist couple / Red Shield (SA 4.34), and the Clarence Reid cachet, which was issued in a limited edition of only 25 copies according to the respected US FDC dealer James McCusker.
