Homemade envelope. One of the few 114s I have seen that does not indicate the origin PO, against PO regulations.

I have some questions about the Cavendish Auction Chislehurst cover.

Is this really a cover, or a manufactured/contrived item. The address side is much darker than the other paper. Could this be a piece glued over a clipping?

Also, were there absolutely no size limitations on mail? It is hard to imagine this item being accepted at a post office counter. If it were put in the mail stream, it would be in constant danger of being lost or discarded as a scrap.

Reduced envelope first flight cover from San Juan to Miami FAM-6 in January 1929. Nice franking!

I do like tiny covers. I have six or seven to scan when I get home, but meanwhile here's one I just bought on eBay.

I had hoped my contribution might make it as the smallest cover, but at 93mm x 60mm, (that's 3.625" x 2.25" for the metrically challenged), I wasn't even close.

So here's my entry for the smallest postage due cover.

Purists here will no doubt argue this isn't a "cover", but a "card"
