Covers and Postal History

Covers and Postal History

Complete envelopes which are franked with stamps to pay the postage. These are collectible by virtue of the postal routes traveled, the postal rates paid, the cancellations and other route markings and the combination of stamps used to pay the postage. Postal history collecting is a separate field and is very complex, with the value of a cover usually bearing no relation whatsoever to the stamps on the cover. Rather, it is usually a function of the scarcity of the postage rates evident on the cover and the route markings thereon.
