This answer was rated:

Hi I'm sorting my late fathers possessions and have come across a first day cover of The Centenary of the death of David Livingstone in Botswana, do you think it's worth anything please?
JA: The Antiques Appraiser can help. You can also send photos once I've connected you. Do you know how old the item is?
Customer: the stamp is 1973
JA: What condition is the item in?
Customer: The stamps are good but the envelope looks aged
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: No I don't think so, thank you

It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!

Thank you I am happy to wait for an answer.

Sadly, interest in First day Covers has continued its downward decline and that leaves your example having a value of no more than about £5. Sorry. Greg
