SA 4.14 – rare US FDC

SA 4.14 – Mather’s Forgery

Salvation Army world centennial, issued 02.07.1965. This cachet is noted in the Mellone catalogue (nr. 29) as a “Mather’s Forgery” cachet. The cover was created by dealer Jerry P. Mather. He made counterfeit covers with phony First Day of Issue postmark, and his covers are really collector rarities now. The cachet has a black Salvation Army Shield and is noted as nr 4.14 in the SA FDC catalogue. The shield is an imitation of the shield on the SA cachet 4.12:  Read more about the FDC dealer here:
