USPS rarely issues FDCs in this size (called legal size, 9.5 x 4.1 inches), let aside it's not even known to print official cache's that are typically found on the left hand side of the envelope that complements the theme of a stamp. Even the professionally released FDCs usually measure 6.5 x 3.5 inches in size but with outstanding cache's that are popular among the Philatelists, including for these stamps. It is, therefore that these USPS official FDCs have become the most sought after FDCs around the world. What you won't notice strikingly would be the usage of GOLDEN print on the protection sleeves of each FDC and the cover itself, not to mention such wonderful designs of the stamps and the cache's too. These were issued in a limited number and got sold out in hurry .
