Just got these two in today. Both are exceptional pieces, in my opinion.

The first is a very nice example of R17c (3-cent Playing Cards), which is fairly uncommon on a CDV. More importantly though, it is sound (most are not) and has wonderful deep color. The subject matter is military, which is always in demand.

Second is a piece that I hemmed and hawed over buying, but ultimately decided I had to own. It is currently the only reported example of R6e (2c Bank Check on green paper) on a CDV. I now have two examples of R6e on documents, but this is the nicer of the two. Ex-Baryla.
