While the CDS/value portion of this metered cover is generally common in design, the piggyback-on-flat-car illustrated advertising slug inserted into the meter head and the illustrated corner card make this cover very attractive to railroad and transportation collectors and will typically be offered at $5-8 retail for its topical connections.

I agree with John, that postmark and corner card make a nice cover. You probably should try to flatten the corners and keep it from getting more creases.
