Back when I was a young lad, I used to collect stamps. I collected first day covers aided by a steady supply from an Aunt who worked as a medical receptionist at a practise that received them from various drug companies.
I've started collecting FDCs again in recent years.
First with Canada Post annual sets.
The, a couple of years ago, FDCs from the UK - including the full set of London Olympics gold medal winners.
This year, I have expanded and ordered from Ireland and Finland.
The Finnish one arrived yesterday:
Well, what did you expect?
How could I resist a Tom of Finland first day cover?
There is just one minor annoyance.
The envelope is not the same size as my UK ones so it will not fit in the album.
