I have a collection of 47 FDCs for US Scott 739, the stamp issued in 1934 to celebrate the 300th anniversary of first European - Frenchman Jean Nicolet - to set foot in what is now Wisconsin. I just acquired this cover with a C. Stephen Anderson cachet (Planty 739-11) signed by the stamp designer, Victor S. McCoskey, Jr. The cover is a bit toned, but Mr. McCoskey's signature makes it special. Mr. McCoskey spent almost 40 years at the Bureau of Printing and Engraving and was named designer in 1934. This was among his earliest stamp designs. This one will hold a place of honor in this FDC collection next to the letter signed by PMG James Farley, the cover signed by 3rd Asst. PMG Clinton Eilenberger, and the two signed by the Green Bay PM, John Farrell.
