A “new” Ben Kraft handpainted cachet turned up on Ebay, picturing an eagle. Text: 1865 – 1965 – 100th anniversary”, the century anniversary for the International Salvation Army. Unlisted in the SA FDC catalogue, has not been seen before. This is likely an “add-on” cachet, handpainted after the original issue. Such cachets are usually done in small quantities and thus are really quite scarce! Ben Kraft was a well-known add-on painter and auction prices can be quite high! (Source: US FDC seller dwa7)
