BUFFALO BILL William Cody 1st Day Cover 1988 BUFFALO BILL Stamp.....

On June 6, 1988, the USPS issued a stamp honoring U.S. Frontier Scout and Showman, William F. Cody - "Buffalo Bill."  Shown here is a genuine First Day Cover, an envelope with the new stamp cancelled from the city of issue (Cody, Wyoming) on the first day of issue captioned above.  In short, it's the 'birthday' of the stamp - a collectible, historic piece of postal and Western memorabilia.

The cachet (artwork on the envelope) shows a portrait of a mature "Buffalo Bill."  It's printed on silk, the luster lending an almost three-dimensional look to the picture, with a gold embossed border. There are two U.S. postage stamps for Cody.  This is his first and was issued just for him - in other words, it was not part of a set.

Double matted in blue & white, it's sized to fit a standard 8 x 10 picture frame.  ***CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY INCLUDED***
