  • Hi Justin --

    These are called "first day covers" and are issued on the first day of stamp distribution. The medal is a bonus; they are fancied, pretty much, by stamp collectors, not coin collectors. Your 1974 FDC sells for $3 to $8 US dollars.

    Here's one that sold on eBay:

The papers mean almost nothing. These items are strongly marketed (in other words, lied about), and the buyer always pays too much. Keep them for what they are: pieces of artwork, or sell them on eBay.

      Here is an article about selling coins, medals, and tokens:
