Store stamp required

Share this article

I am a collector of first day covers and wonder if anyone can help?

In October 1972, a philatelic exhibition was held at Rowntrees Department Store from October 17 to 28. A special cover and handstamp was produced. I enclose a photocopy of two covers (one is pictured) sent at the time to an ex-employee of Rowntrees. I am trying to obtain one of these covers bearing the full set of 1972 Christmas stamps postmarked on the first day of issue (the 18th rather than the 17th).

If anyone can help me I would be most grateful.
