The value depends upon the specific stamp and the time frame. Most current FDC covers can be purchased for a dollar from a dealer. Large value stamps and older covers have a larger value and may be worth considerably more. Plate blocks also add to value. Consult a catalog to identify the stamp. Specialty catalogs for FDCs can also give you more accurate values.
