re: covers and postcards made from materials other than paper

This one made of some type of tree bark actually went through the mail in Vermont in 1907...its a shame that the stamp has probably long since been removed.Image Not Found

re: covers and postcards made from materials other than paper

This cover is a cloth bag measuring about 4.5 inches by 6 inches. Front and back shown below. (Later edit: This fits this my broad definition of a "cover," but maybe not those of others.)

It was sent in 1986 to a friend of mine here in the US from Dr. Brihaspati Dev Triguna from the village of Sarai Kale Khan, a village in Delhi, India. Contents were food supplements. Dr. Triguna was quite a famous alternative medicine practitioner and is featured on a 2019 stamp of India. The image of the stamp below is from Wikimedia Commons. It is an image from India Post and shareable under the Government Open Data License - India.

re: covers and postcards made from materials other than paper

A friend of mine, now deceased, gave me her stamp collection. Within it was this small box sent to her father (or grand-father), civil servant in Le Puy, center of France. It probably contained jewelry as the box is registered. Only one stamp, type Sage, 40 cts. The stamp seems to be Type I. I cannot read the franking date. If someone can decipher the date!!

The box itself is in wood with two hinges allowing to open and close the cover. Dimensions: 8 cm x 6.2 cm x 3 cm (divide by 2.54 to get in in inches).

It was mailed from Riom, where she was from. Riom was not far from Le Puy.

Charlie, it seems that you are right. I did not think to look that way. I was expected the date on asingle line as it is split in three. Thanks, Michel
