Full Answer

To get a rough idea of the value of a first day cover prior to visiting a dealer, consult books with value estimates to give you a starting point. Be aware that this is typically the price a dealer sells the item for, so generally you receive under that amount, unless you directly sell it to another collector by posting it on websites, such as Craigslist or Amazon.

An additional way to sell first day covers is to go through an online auctioneer or auction website, such as eBay. If you live in an area without strong demand for these collectibles, selling on the Internet might be your best bet, as this allows you to reach everyone across the globe with access to the Internet, tremendously increasing the number of potential buyers.
