Here are my latest acquisitions of Queen Victoria (first of the kind since I have no QV covers), so I thought I'd share them with you.

If you take notice - each of the above is quite nicely postmarked. Here's an irony for you. The envelope in which they arrived from the US to Canada has no postmarks on either front nor back and yet - somehow it arrived Happy

Nice covers! I have never seen a rectangular barred line cancel before (3rd cover). I don't know nearly as much about GB cancels of this era than I would like to.

Thanks Happy

I wish I could read the handwriting - it's very difficult to make out the one letter. Penmanship of 1840s was much different than our day, eh?

Very nice indeed Kelly. The "BRIDE St" stamp is interesting on the 1847 cover. Would this be from the sending post office?

re: 1845 to 1847 Covers

Tim - I was wondering about that - I thought it rather odd to see.

There is a lot to learn from these - including the letters that I am trying to decipher.

One (I forget which at the moment) is quite interesting. It is bookshop. Apparently a package of school textbooks and several other items arrived there by accident with no invoice or information as to where they were supposed to be sent.

I'll look at it again tomorrow because I found it quite interesting. I'll post what I can decipher from some of them. Another one, I got the gist of the beginning - it is a student who sent £33 with his application to something - I didn't read through the entire letter. I was just thinking - wow £33 was a lot of money in those days.

I'll update tomorrow Happy

Kelly

re: 1845 to 1847 Covers

That's a very nice group Kelly!

The first one has a London "Inland Section" postmark from a main post office in central London. As far as I know the specific number (11) doesn't refer to a particular location. I believe the arrival mark on the reverse would have said "WHITCHURCH SALOP".

The second front image is the first one repeated.

The third one has the "13" in horizontal bars postmark of Arbroath which is the standard Scottish pattern at the time as well as an Arbroath backstamp and what I assume is an Edinburgh arrival mark from the next day.

The last one has the Irish number in a diamond pattern of bars postmark (in this case 186 from Dublin) and was sent from Bride Street to Upper Merrion Street within Dublin.

You really don't want old QV covers.
You want to donate them to Coco's dad.
These aren't the covers you're looking for.
Move on.
