All,

I took a chance at a 5 & dime store - they had a packet with two old French covers for $5.99, the cancel struck my interest, plus it turned out cover contains contents, my French is not good, but appeared to be a Baptismal document. My questions are:

1. Does the ALGER cancel mean French stamps used in Algeria?
2. I probably got $5.99 enjoyment just by looking, but was this worth the $5.99 or a common thing?

Thanks for your help,
Josh

"1. Does the ALGER cancel mean French stamps used in Algeria?"



Yes.

"2. I probably got $5.99 enjoyment just by looking, but was this worth the $5.99 or a common thing?"



Glad you got the enjoyment out of it. I would not hesitate before putting it into BuckaCover inventory with an initial price of $1.50 (prices drop as items remain available).

Thanks, Roy. It was worth a shot, do not come across old covers while Christmas shopping too often...

I am a collector of colonial Africa and would value that cover, if intact well above a $1.50 common. I actively search France accumulations for similar uses.

From 1849 to 1924 stamps used in Algeria were the ones used in continental France. Same between 1958 to 1962.
