Stampman2002: Where did you find the information that Beazells were only produced 1-5 examples for each design. Did you read that somewhere or is this a personal opinion?
In the November/December 2019 issue of FIRST DAYS, I have an article concerning the 8 designs that Beazell produced for the 1932 Lake Placid Olympic Winter Game stamp issued January 25, 1932 (Scott 716). I can show (with verification) that for that issue he produced at least 8 examples for the ski jumping design, 11 examples for the skating contest and ice skating designs, 12 examples for winter scene and ski-ing designs, 13 examples of the sleighing and sledding designs and at least 14 examples of the tobagganing design for a grand total of 94 covers spread over the 8 designs.
Only 10 of the covers have handcancels, the rest are machine cancels.
Prices for Beazells are coming down. My personal opinion is that there are fewer collectors of FDCs from the 1920s-1940s are older collectors are dying off. The supply may be the same, but the demand has lessened.
