Here we have a beautiful Frank Ulrich Hand
Painted Cachet featuring a colorful "Cancer Crusade" banner. It appears
to have been painted with watercolors. I don't know how many of these
cachets Mr. Ulrich created, but I'm very happy to have one in my collection.
It's one of my favorite cachets. It is also one of the more valuable
covers in my collection. Unfortunately, this example includes some
unsightly brown spots along the bottom of the cover. He created his
first hand painted cachet back in the early 1960s. Frank also released
another, very different, hand painted cachet for the Crusade Against Cancer
stamp, however, so far, I've been unable to add one of them to my collection.
