October 7, 1949 Richmond, Va First Day of Issue cancellation on the 3 cent Edgar Allen Poe stamp released on that day in Richmond. First Day covers come in a variety of illustrated cachets and have always been very collectible.  Most specialized collectors may go for all the cachets known for a particular stamp or may collect only those cachets of a certain manufacturer.  The ways to collect these covers seems endless.
