Cachet Display Catalog: FDC Cachetmakers Index

      This page lists possible new Cachetmaker pages I may create on this site someday. I have twenty (20) or more, up to several hundred different designs for each of these individual Cachetmakers or Cachet Lines for pages not created yet. I do not wish to conflict or compete with anyone who has published or plans to publish a Cachetmaker Catalog for any Cachetmaker on this list. I have also included in the list every Cachetmaker Display Page I have created already. At this time I do not know when any of these new pages will be created. (Note1) Please let me know if a conflict exists with any other author. Thank you.

      (nn) = as of 9-06-2023, the total number of scans in all Cachetmaker directories (16,400)
      (N/A nn) = all scans for this Cachetmaker were saved in one or more of several thousand Scott Number directories, so if a total is shown, it is the number of cover scans displayed on my "@" Cachet Display page for them, otherwise, determining a total is not possible.

    207. World War II Patriotics (mostly not FDC's)
      As documented in:
      United States Patriotic Envelopes of World War II, 2nd ed. by Lawrence Sherman (2006)
      Out of the 11,060 listings in the book, I have only about 1,000 scans saved so far, with 590+ installed on my page:
    208. World War II Patriotics Sherman/Guthrie/Minkus/Linn Number Conversion (in Sherman # order)
    209. Sherman 2nd ed. Index by Cachetmaker, World War II Patriotics

    210. Plus those already installed at -- Huss (above) -- Minkus #1 -- Minkus #2 and MacArthur/Nimitz (Huss's and "Minkus #1" are in Sherman # order)

      Specific Patriotic Cachetmakers (in Sherman # order)
      American Art Service (AAS)
      W.B. Heckman
            From Evanston, IL, like Huss, who may have overprinted a VJ Day Huss cachet. Sherman identifies as Heckman's, one or more cachets I believe are Huss's. Like other World War II Patriotic Cachetmakers Huss and Minkus, so far I have not seen any Heckman design that was made for a specific new U.S. stamp issue.

      Note1: "At this time I do not know when any of these new pages will be created." As I am 82 years old, it is likely that I will not be able to create every page listed above. But my goal is to try to create as many as I can. I have left instructions with my family that, after I am gone, a copy of all of my hard drive files with their thousands of cover scans I have accumulated from the Web since 2018 and scans I have done of my own collection acquired since 1973 (both by Cachetmaker and by Scott Number) will be sent to the AFDCS Archives at the American Philatelic Research Library in Bellefonte, PA. FYI, as of 02-02-2022, the totals number of scans in my Cachetmaker directories was 13,500. -- Sample Makers -- Sample Numbers
