I find there is truly something elegant about this FDC -- that's the most expressive adjective I could come up with.

re: An elegant FDC - Machins

Is there any suppliers mark?

Sometimes there is an embossed mark on the back or the envelope flap.

"Sometimes there is an embossed mark on the back or the envelope flap."



No, nothing on this one. It came in a collection that was predominantly Stuart, Mercury and Sovereign covers, plus of course, GPO. Those all seem to have the maker's logo. It has the look of the Sovereign covers of 1970. Maybe they only added the logo in 1970.

There is a descriptive insert inside, which I am confident will identify it, but the cover is sealed and I am not going to open it.

I just thought it was very pretty. Actually, the scan does not do justice to the engraving of the stamps and cachet.

I think part of it is the fancy-pants address the Brits love.

I'm thinking of taking back the original spelling of our family name and trying this new one...

I'll pop a letter in the postbox to myself and see what happens.

Cheerio! Pip-pip! By Jeeves!

Lemaven:

You'll get your letter as Canada Post cares not to whom it is addressed. They look at the Postal Code (which is a Letter Carrier Route, unless it ends in a zero - then it's a Rural Route or PO Box), then the letter carrier delivers from his route to the street address.

re: An elegant FDC - Machins

Roy, have you tried holding the cover up to a bright light? If you need to just make out a trademark, I would think that would do it.
