This page will link to an extensive listing of Auctions and lots where Arkansas covers have been sold over the years. The records indicate the auction, sale, date, lot, the sending PO, date of mailing, destination, description as presented in the auction catalog, price estimate, price realized when known, and whether there is a photo available of the cover. Over time I will make some of these listings linked to the cover photos.
