I am curious as to what the membership would think of a AEROGRAMME and or Aircraft related Postal Stationery theme posts?
Aerogrammes , in my opinion are a MOST underrated collectable! There are bunches of them out there, with varieties of major ones making the total a large number to collect!
On the other hand, aircraft related postal stationery is not as large, but for those who like planes, a fun way to seek new material for the collection.
I, for one, collect for the enjoyment of collecting, NOT for building up a monetary hedge fund over the years for my estate to deal with. How many of you are like that?
Both of these topics have material that can be obtained at reasonable prices, if you go to the right places, or pay a lot for if going to the wrong places.
Here are a couple of what I am talking about. Rare, probably not! Fun to obtain and result in a great addition to my collection? Yep!
The first will be a scan of a CEYLON aerogramme, that has several varieties (some with the lower stamp (Ceylon for quality teas), some without. Issued 1969
The second is a nice aircraft related postal stationery envelope from North Korea! Issued 2004. Shows a nice shot of the Concorde aircraft!
Those were just two of so many out there. Aerogrammes were around for maybe 50 years (+/-). Envelopers have had aircraft related items for many more years.
If there is a good enough interest level, I will post more. If not, I thank you all for reading this and enjoy your collecting. I do.
