Morris W. Beck US States Covers


Morris W. Beck produced two different series of covers honoring the states and territories. 
These covers were produced for collectors that sent in their envelopes. 
It was a similar service to his other series such as Presidents and Naval event covers.
 
These covers are hard to find especially in a complete set. 
A complete set of the 1951-2  or 1956-7 series sells for about $300 each and the full sets are rarely found.


The 1951-52 and 1956-1957 MWBeck States series has experienced a resurgence in collector interest over the
past several years.  A number of covers on eBay have sold for prices rivaling many space covers. 

The covers seem to be in short supply given the demand.  We suggest you find them while you still can.

At the bottom of this listing, we show examples of the 1951-1952
series printed on postcards instead of envelopes.

The Wyoming scan above from Larry Johnson is very interesting because it shows Wyoming
