can be an exciting addition to your collection. There are many types
of events that can be part of a specialized collection. The
collector could specialize in event covers of
Ship Commissionings or
Royal Coronations, Railroad
Events, or any other type of event that the collector
has a special interest in.
Collecting Event Covers also enables the collector
to acquire covers of celebrities or special places for which there
may not have been an actual stamp issued and allows for a much wider
scope of topics than simply collecting the cover for the stamp
One of my former
Special Event Cover Collections
"Submarines on Eternal Patrol,"
(U.S. submarines sunk during World War
II). These covers contain a cachet
(picture) of the lost boat
and were canceled on anniversaries of the actual loss.
Illustrated below are a
Railroad Event Cover -
Centennial Celebration of the Hartford, Providence & Fishkill
Railroad and a
Patriots Super Bowl Win in 2002.
