I am very sorry, but I do not have a single one! But your post makes me wonder - how many different ones of the Iwo Jima stamp are there? And I also noticed on eBay that some seem to be high priced?

There are 61 cachets for the Iwo Jima stamp (Scott 929) listed in Mellone's Specialized Cachet Catalog of First Day Covers of the 1940s (Vol I) -- these are the ones that I am collecting.

There are also numerous cachets that aren't listed in Mellone as well as add-on cachets that were applied well after the stamps' introduction.

Yes, some can be quite expensive.
