Philatelic Cover - What a Beginner Collector Should Know

A 1925 philatelic cover, the stamps are from Austria, Germany, Côte d'Ivoire, French Guiana, United States, and French India.

For the longest time, stamp collectors and enthusiasts have thought up creative ways on how they can source and collect stamps for their collections. One such strategy involves the use of the philatelic cover, or an envelope loaded with stamps and address and sent using the postal delivery system with the objective to boost one’s collections. It was a common practice for stamp collectors to exchange mails among themselves in the hope of getting their hands on the treasured stamps.
