I was going through my cover collection and came across FDCs that my parents got for everyone in the family; my sister's first one was the 1953 QE-II Coronation but my first one was this one (I was born in 1955).

I always like re-discovering things like this.

re: My first First Day Cover (1962)

This is my first FDC ....i was in a kind of remote area of Southern Italy and had been away from stamps for a while when i saw the "stamps" column in the Sunday Herald Tribune that we would get down from Germany..so i said what the heck and sent probably a dime to the place of issue. I did not even know enough to put a filler in my return envelope...hence the bit of scotch tape on the side. I do not throw very much away !Image Not Found

Seems like one thing leads to another...my sister was in Rome on a tour and suggested i come up and attach myself to the tour. Sometimes being young and ignorant or brazen has its benefits and i get a tour of Rome and actually stood about 30 feet from the Pope when they brought him in on his chair. So of course i go to the Vatican post office and send an airmail cover that could easily have gone by train to myself. Again no filler..again tape on the cover !Image Not Found
