Weisz Stamps & Covers is one of the largest full-time professional specialists in this area of philately. “Covers” are most simply an envelope that has been through the mail. They have been called covers since before there were envelopes because they “covered” the letter inside with a folded piece of paper sealed by wax. There are hundreds of specialties and areas of this collecting area. Some covers were expressly created for collectors, and these are called “philatelic covers.” The others are our daily mail dating back to the 1700s, and this is “commercial mail” or “postal history.” Since mail touches all our lives and different ways, there are more reasons and ways to collect postal history than anyone could imagine. Collect your favorite country, mail from the town or county you grew up in, or mail that relates to a famous idol. Collect topical interests like sports, animals, architecture, advertising, or food. Hundreds of fascinating covers tell your story.
