Great Britain 1961-1967 Pair of Two VF Wilding Covers to Italy and Portugal, Both Surface Rates

Sold out

Two very fine surface rate covers addressed to Italy and Portugal as follows:

  • Italy cover was sent November 22, 1961 and is franked with a single untagged 6d.
  • Portugal cover was sent January 1967 and is franked with a single 9d bronze green, reflecting the higher rate. 

Our estimate of the value of these covers based on the above factors is $8.  To understand how we have assessed these covers and arrived at this estimate and to gain a broader understanding of postal history collecting, I would suggest you read the article linked here. It should clarify the factors that make covers, and this one in particular scarce, and will help you to understand why we have estimated it at this amount.
