mm-dd-yyyy - First Day of Issue
Lot #nnn/375 = McCusker Auction #375, Lot number
Lot #nnn/380 = McCusker Auction #380, Lot number

      Except for #796#799-NIP6b and #901, all other displays are courtesy of James T. McCusker's Public Auction #375, September 11, 2019. All Volker cachets in this Auction were sold and the Auction scans were deleted. The large scans for #863 - #897 were the few scans I saved from the Auction site before they were all deleted. After that, the scans for #902 - #940 I could only find in "Google Images" and they are all too small to show sufficient detail. I do not own and I have never seen in person any of the cachets documented on this page.
