What is a first day cover?

At its most basic level, a first day cover (FDC) is an envelope bearing stamps postmarked on the first day that the stamps were issued. A cover originates from the practice of covering a letter in a separate sheet, so that it remained protected and safe from prying eyes. On the day the penny black was first issued, 1 May 1840, so emerged the very first FDC. Click here to find out more about first day covers
