A not-too-often collected specialty are International Reply Coupons. Here's one that is (for the first time, I believe) advertised and offered for sale direct from the US Postal Service Stamp Fulfillment Services:



For $2.20, the engraved printing on the IRC, including the unique UPU hologram make it a definite collectible for me. If anyone is interested in these, they can be ordered at this link:

Thanks for sharing wt1.

Very collectable and so attractive for a modern mailing item.

I collect these too. Thanks for the info. I missed one of the limited time only ones in the past and was very bummed. I will try to scan and post a couple that I have.

I have been trying to obtain the newer IRC's from the UPU member countries before these are gone as well. Europe seems to have a good number around, have found sources for Africa, Asia as of yet, but still looking. I find this to be a interesting side collection. If any interest I may post a few.
