Another cover from Valverde del Camino



Unfortunately, this one isn't tied.

Somebody tell me if these aren't locals please!

Wow! what a great cover,
let us know if you want to sell.

I have never seen the overprint as on this cover,
but the basic stamp is the fascist party
or falange.

They will all be for sale one day Rod. I don't think any one else in my family is interested in these.

The Spanish covers all originated from a great-great uncle who worked for Compania Anonima de Buitron at Valverde del Camino from 1936 until 1948. The letters are all addressed to various relatives.

I hope I am around when you sell :)

May I hazard a guess around $5 to $10 a cover?
what is your estimation?
I saw a similar cover 2010 going for 3.5 euros
not sure of its closing price.

If they are relatives,
I think you should keep them in the family.

The cover for 3.5 eur

There are a few commercial covers with locals or charities from elsewhere as well.

I'm fairly certain that hand belongs to my great-great aunt, who was writing to her sister (my great grandmother).

Well she (in my opinion) had an almost perfect style,
beautiful small "r's" and "O's"
She only fails on her "2's" , just a bit basic.

That ink and nib had to have come from a quality Parker pen.
