Artmaster Cachet
(Three Varieties)

Original Uncolored Black Ink Variety

Hand Colored Variety

Purple Ink Variety

These three very beautiful Artmaster covers feature the American Cancer Society's Sword of Hope along with images of some important equipment used to treat cancer patients.  The first combination cover includes the original engraved black ink cachet.  The second cover is identical, except for the beautiful coloring added by some unknown hand.  The third cover is also the same, except it was printed in purple ink.  This same cachet was also used on the Doyle Pharmaceutical Company cover presented later in this online exhibit.  Artmaster produced its first cachet for the 3c Veterans of World War II stamp issued on May 9, 1946.  The cachet includes the following text:

Commemorating the
Crusade Against Cancer

American Cancer Society, Inc.
First Day of Issue
