First Day Cover
These first day covers were issued by F.A.I.P. (no. 127). The cachets repeat images found on the San Marino Dante stamps of 1965, themselves reproductions of illustrations by Gustave Doré. One cachet features Doré's portrait of Dante and the other shows the illustration "Charon and the River Acheron" from Inferno 3:82–84. Above each cachet is the coat of arms of San Marino and "REP. SAN MARINO".
