I am assisting my son-in-law with selling an inherited collection of stamps. We have worked our way through the many cartons of albums, plate blocks, stock books and misc US along with WW. There are thousands of US first day covers, and a few WW, quite a few topical FDC and misc. I see many FDCs on eBay at just over $1.00. I have no idea of real world value of these. If there is anyone who resides in NW Georgia, Atlanta to Chattanooga area,(too much to ship economically) that may be interested in purchasing a large lot of FDCs, I will drive to meet you. I expect these will be a great deal for someone who appreciates them. Please let me know if there is interest and I will post pictures not of the individual FDCs but of the many albums etc. Also please advise what additional info you may need.
Trying to determine if this would be better donated to APS.
Thanks for looking.

As a general rule, unless the cachet makers are scarce, most FDCs from the 1940s to present are of nominal value. Both the APS and AFDCS (American First Day Cover Society) will accept these as donations. If you itemize, you can take a tax deduction for the contributions and the shipping costs.

Large lots of modern American FDCs often sell for as little as ten cents each.

Over the years, I've built a places-to-donate-stamps list that is available as a PDF; just PM me for the current version.

Cheers,

ikeyPikey: PM sent. I checked with my son-in-law and they do itemize, so if that is the route taken on this, what value per cover is allowed on the donation?
At a very quick glance, this collection appears to be complete starting in the late 1930s until early 2000s. All that I have looked at, very limited knowledge here, are common cachets and most are addressed. Having added that additional info are there any specific issues that I should look for that may have value out of the ordinary?
Thank you all for your assistance on this project.
