Probably my smallest cover, which is a 5c envelope (116x76 mm), a Y&T 75-E3 I believe.



It certainly sets no records for small, but it's a nice cover, IMO.

9.8x5.9 cm inland postage rate from the Turkish Cypriot village of Phalia in the Paphos district to the municipality of Famagusta in the east of the island. The letter was posted some time between 1921 and August 1, 1951 when the stamp used was invalidated.
Earliest recorded use of the postmark was in 1913 while the latest use of the same postmark was in 1973 (nothing unusual for many small Cypriot villages).Population in 1960 was 189 Turks who formed an enclave in 1964 before leaving in 1975 to be relocated in the north of the island following the Turkish invasion and subsequent division of Cyprus in 1974.

My smallest is 3" x 2" and I recently learned that the recipient has a colorful regional story.

Norman W. Brillhart was born in 1895 in Bowie, Texas, but lived his adult life primarily in Madill, Oklahoma. He graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 1917 with a bachelor's degree in geology and received a McGraw Fellowship in geology for further study at Cornell University. His stay at Cornell, however, was cut short when the United States entered World War I in 1917. Brillhart withdrew from classes and joined the U.S. Army. After serving as a second lieutenant in the Sixty-third Engineers in France and Germany he returned to Oklahoma and began his career as a geologist for several oil companies. Between 1919 and 1930 he worked for Empire Gas and Fuel Company of Bartlesville, Reiter-Foster Oil of Tulsa, Simms Oil Company of Dallas, and Cranfill-Reynolds Oil Company of Cisco, Texas. He then became an independent oil producer and worked in other phases of the oil business. In 1924 Brillhart married Mildred Colby of Madill, Oklahoma. Brillhart enjoyed success with his oil and gas interests and branched out into other business ventures in Oklahoma and Texas, including serving as president and chairman of the board of the First National Bank of Madill and as a member of the First National Bank of Denison, Texas. Brillhart also served several terms on the University of Oklahoma Athletic Council, was a president of the OU Dads Association, and was a member of the board of the Confederate Home in Ardmore, Oklahoma. Among the many honors accorded him were the Distinguished Service Citation from the University of Oklahoma in 1951 and a lifetime membership in the Ardmore Geological Society. Brillhart remained closely associated with the University of Oklahoma throughout his career, and much of the Brillharts' generosity was directed toward the university. Their earliest significant gift to the university was the donation of 2.5 acres of lakefront property and an unfinished building on Lake Texoma for a fisheries station in 1949.3 This gift developed into OU's Biological Research Station, which has grown to 30 acres, plus 282 acres leased from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for an ecological research area. Today it is a flourishing biological field station for experiments by OU students and faculty.

Here's two small ones I have come across recently -

Small card from the U.S. -





..and a wee envelope from the Bahamas.



It was slit open on three sides thus you can see the front and back at the same time.

Oh, and these European panoramic postcards are less than 2" tall. You can find them on eBay from a bunch of different places.

This cover is 3" x almost 3" or 9.5cm x 7.5cm.

Posted from Singleton 23 November 1882.

I started researching this cover just now. Point Piper Road was renamed Jersey Road in early 1901.

The property name was one of at least three named "Innellan" in inner Sydney but the name was changed to "Lynton".

As with quite a few addressees on covers of this period that I have, Mrs Scott's death in 1896, along with her husband in 1879 and daughter in 1925, were written up in the newspapers.
