    yea not shore if there rare. i did read somewere that these covers were easy and cheap to get at one stage, but dont hold me on that. i have not come across many or none only the one i have. i live right down the bottom of the world tho and lot of stuff is hard to come bye.
    but if the cover that you are looking at is in very poor condition, well you would think the price should not be to high. a lot of stuff is listed as rare on ebay i think everything on there is rare ha ha. but some of the m1 collectors on this site that have been collecting for a good amount of years might be able say if that these covers were or still are hard to come bye.

    These are very hard to find covers I believe the only ones that are really "common" I would say is the 1953 dated covers with EGA stamps but even the supply of those are drying up.
