Buckingham Covers - First Day Covers


This is the type of postmark you see on most mail today, where you get the date and then three or four ‘wavy’ lines. The best known is probably ‘Don’t forget your postcode’. These type of postmarks do appear on first day covers and are very collectable if the postmark connects with the subject of the stamps. They are very hard to get as you have to place the stamps correctly and the machines are known to ‘eat’ covers.
