Now what to do with this Cover collection? ... Any advise on presenting a lot of covers. I feel like it's kinda selfish keeping all this history filed away? Looking for advice? Or ideas to share collection...

Did your Gramps collect German stamps? I ask because I note the cover sticking out with the return address of Rudolf Abel. He was a dealer in German materiel out of Estherville Iowa, died around 1969 or so.

Lots of choices. Simplest is to put them into individual sleeves, which also takes up the least space. Disadvantage is that they aren't really displayed then.

You can buy purpose-made albums for covers, which are produced by Lighthouse and other manufacturers.

You can also buy sleeves (usually with space for four covers on a two-sided A4 page, which will fit in a ring-binder. Here's a UK version

I mounted my French FDCs on quadrille pages in albums, using photo corner mounts. If the paper's thick enough and you use interleaving, you can get four on a sheet by using both sides. However, I did start with a lot of old leaves that I could re-use and a lot of old binders to out them in.

I'm going to specialize/focus on air & arctic. So bartering is on the table for me. If Its mutually beneficial.

Have you found anything on-line besides the "you tube" top 10 Italian stamps about BC&S. Who and what are they? The few I looked are not in Scott. They require specialized Italy catalog and auction house results. I do not know if the prices shown are catalog price, buy price, sold price or made up price or if the stamps exist.
