This is a non-philatelic 1962 cover out of Poland to Canada. For those of us who collect variant airmail borders, it is interesting for the border of slanted parallelograms with a maple leaves. The design is repeated on the reverse and is an example of commercially available stationery mfg'ed by the Provincial Envelope Company.

Here is a May 1, 1948 first flight cover from Frankfurt A.M. Germany (U.S. zone of occupation) to New York, N.Y. It was flown by Pan American World Airways.

The recipient of the cover, Charles Merz, was editor of the N.Y. Times for 24 years until his retirement in 1977.

Several collecting points for this 1944 philatelic cover out of the Dominican Republic. It is a first-day for the four-stamp Communications Building set, Sc. C49-C52; a censored cover; a registered cover with New York Registry Division cancels on the reverse; and addressed to a Nassau Street stamp dealer. I collected the cover for its variant airmail border.

If you can take your eyes off that bisect (I'll give you a moment), this cover also features a very elaborate airmail etiquette livery along the lower edge.

I usually assiduously remove stamp catalog numbers & prices, but I've left these in place, for now, lest any artifacts of erasure cast doubt on that GPU (Genuinely Postally Used) bisect.

And, yeah, too bad about the torn stamp.

https://susanfrost.org/index.php?op...3&Itemid=222 ... Susan Frost has an informative note about Lito B Zadik & Co, the company that produced this cover, on her website.

Cheers,

An attractive cover, Ikey Pikey, especially the art deco airmail designater along the bottom edge.


Below is a 1942 Canadian first-flight Sidney to St. John's Newfoundland.
