Since this is the cover forum, I will post the
2 really neat looking covers I found in a book.
Remember that I don't know anything about this stuff,
but it sure looks neat-o!
The second two pics are more interesting.
The first is a cover of sorts, from Calf Creek
It is nothing more than a sheet of paper.
At first I didn't understand, but then I saw the note on the
back... Pretty self explanitory.
Next, this one is not really a cover.
I don't really know. The stamp is cancelled,
but it does't appear to have ever been sent
I get it though. The photo is the real life image as
the engraving on the stamp itself. Is this a common item?
The back of the photo is rubber stamped in red ink.
"GEO. W. WENTZ, JR"
"San Marcos, Texas"
It looks like history to me... Can anyone tell me any
more about this sort of
This stuff is unreal.
I have only scratched the surface of Dad's collection.
It is HUGE!
Dozens of books, stamps old and new, stamps stuffed in legal
envelopes til the seams are about to bust, hundreds of old covers,
and on and on. Every time I just peek into the stuff, I find things
I am sure there are going to be plenty more pics and questions
posted by me for a long time to come.
Thanks for any info you can give me on some of this stuff!
