I love the old covers too.
They just scream 'history'...

I wonder how hard it would become to fill the holes in a stamp album with the stamps on cover... Do you think it has ever been done?

Edit
Talking about each design, not every single Scott#, which would require watermark testing and such.

re: i guess i just love covers and talking stamps

One of my pet projects is to collect covers of all the historic stamps (US) that I can find. I've used a few to teach kids at my daughter-in-laws classroom (5th grade) about American History and the value of stamp collecting as a great hobby for studying each piece as a image of the past. Unfortunately, the kids of today do not understand that there was a time that there was no telephones, let alone cell and internet access.

Never mind that you posted it in the wrong section, it is a very nice cover (I think the triangular Dutch airmail stamps are really beautiful)

re: i guess i just love covers and talking stamps

One of my major phoo paws in my life was selling this cover. I used the money from the sale of this and some other high end stamps to purchase a house, never seen one in auction since:
