Glassblower.info - 751 FDC - Unlisted Stoutzenberg Stork First Day Cover - 10/10/1934 - Ralph Dyer Cachet
(That's my Mom that the stork is delivering on the date of the postmark!!!)
 
In 1933 and 1934 US Postmaster General James A Farley commemorated ten of the most beautiful of our National Parks
with some of the most beautiful stamps! (Scott numbers 740 through 749 inclusive)
Next sequentially is Scott 750, the 3 cent Mount Rainier Souvenir Sheet of Six - Issued with Gum
Then we finally have Scott 751 the 1 cent Yosemite Souvenir Sheet of Six - Issued with Gum,
which is the stamp featured throughout this web page!

I have seen even professional stamp dealer misidentify the FOUR different Scott numbers for the 1 cent "Yosemite - El Capitan"
which are used for this green stamp, so to help clarify, I've created this table:

Very Large Gutters (gaps between stamps)
Available through 6/15/1935

 
From http://www.shaulisstamps.com/tips/FarleyIssues.htm: "If you have a pair or block of stamps with a gutter in between, it must be #769.
The only way to know for sure with a single copy is if it has an extraordinarily huge margin, then it must be #769.
But with normal margins, you can't tell a single copy of #751 and #769 apart. The normal margin on #751 and #769 is about 12 mm. wide.
I would go with 20 mm. or larger to say that it is a huge margin copy."

The First Day of issue was at the Trans-Mississippi Philatelic Exhibition and Convention, October 8-14, 1934. Below is the actual Event Brochure!

Charles Merrill pointed me to "The United States Commemorative Stamps of the Twentieth Century" by Max G. Johl (1947)
which states on page 292 that "the first day's cancellation was said to have amounted to approximately 125,000".
(Two-Volumes available from Amazon.com)
 
PLEASE NOTE:
  • When "751-" is referenced below, that is a FDC containing a full pane of six 751 stamps (six cents was the air mail rate after July 1, 1934).
  • In contrast, "751a-" is anything less than a full pane (often 3 stamps as that constituted first class postage after July 6, 1932 for an envelope). The postcard rate was 1 cent.

 
Stamp Romances Lore Legend Albert Kunze First Edition
These stamps are so beautiful that a book was written about them!

as part of a series of programs sponsored by the Washington [D.C.] Stamp Club of the Air

I remember reading that the US Postal Service was not too happy that this cachet looked too much like a stamp!

You can see that the green cachet above is identical to the purple 750 (not 751) below,
and notice that both cachets are being mailed to the same person, A. J. Thissen.

Front: 1934 National Park Year
Back: From Walter T. Poppenger / 26 S. High St. Akron O
I understand from reading on the Internet that Walter T. Poppenger produced his cachets from 1933 until 1946.
I believe he is best known for his patriotic World War 2 cachets, for example the series of 13 from #909 - #921,
but more generally #904 - #940 (specifically #940-41 was his last). This #905 is in a museum.
But his first cachets were #730 1 cent and #731 3 cent, both were issued 8/25/1933.

Note about "Plate Number 21341" used to make these 751's, this is also referred to as "21341 B"
where the "B" is a code for "bottom" (which is the location of the plate number).
Other possible plate position codes (for other stamps) might be T for Top, UL for Upper Left, LR for Lower Right, etc.
More information can be found at The American Plate Number Single Society website.
