I really like this cover I just received from AnthonyUK.

(By the way Anthony, thanks, got the stamps, email soon being sent.)

It is a silhouette of the Thames river waterfront in London, England.

The stamp is a Machin type 2 font Faststamp (first I've had) with a
'Mount Pleasant / 8:15 PM / 19 NOV / 2010 / V' machined postmark.

The Royal Mail, London EC logo center top makes me think either that this is a company envelope or an envelope you can buy over the counter at a Post Office.

I might make some envelopes of Halifax now. Not as many well-known landmarks as London but maybe I can add in a couple interesting ones here and there.

Hello

Nice cover!

All with a Machin cover are perfect, do not think so?

On the "Norvic"īs store, he sell many postmark, do you choose what do you want in your envelope, maybe is a normal practice on UK, can you make your own postmark?

OK, many questions for today.
