BuckaCover.com - 80,000 covers priced 60c to $1.50 - Easy browsing 500 categories

I have a database of 150,000 covers that I have sold on ebay going back 22 years. Still have all the pictures. Prices realized range from $3 to $2,000.

Any interest in seeing a "Cover of the Week" ? (of the Day, if I get the participation and can find the time each day).

I see doing it like an Improv show ... audience shouts out a topic / country / theme and I'll see what I can show. I may provide a short description, but philatelic "write-up" contributions to the post will be welcome and will hopefully stir conversation.

You're the audience. Shout away if you are interested.

Roy

re: Any interest in a "Cover of the Week/Day"?

Would greatly enjoy learning more about various markings on covers, so yes! Sounds awesome!

re: Any interest in a "Cover of the Week/Day"?

U.S.19th century?

Could other members also show covers or only you?

Could fiscal instruments be shown?

There is another stamp site that is doing this.

Would only the covers/instruments owned by a member be used?

Hope this works, but I wonder how much current value it would deliver!

Great idea - for me stamps are a sideline of postal history and ephemera.

re: Any interest in a "Cover of the Week/Day"?

I would definitely be interested in a cover discussion group. Sounds like a fine idea to me!

Just call it "Cover of the Day" and if we only have 2 or 3 a week, that is fine, Roy.

Some covers are ho-hum, some covers beg to be researched. This will work better if we have covers shown to us with something interesting to talk about.

I also would suggest some basic information about the cover in the title. That way we don't end up with a hundred articles titled: "Cover of the Day."

Perhaps... Cover of the Day/ year / country / cover highlights / or something like that for a format.

Good cover for the first one, Roy. I would like to see any Hong Kong Queen Victoria covers or Hong Kong registered covers on future days.

Thanks,

This is going to be fun. Already got an HK Vickie picked out for you.

Registered covers up to what period? Just scanned one today that's going up tomorrow for next week's auction. Pretty modern though.

You can start with the oldest one you sold, that would be fine with me.

150,000 covers, wow! How did you keep them sorted?

Do you live in a dry area or humid area?

Did you have any trouble storing them, like mice, mold etc. and etc?

"150,000 covers, wow! How did you keep them sorted?"


I am a full-time dealer. I have been in the stamp business since 1975 and primarily focused on covers since 1998. These 150,000 covers were not in inventory all at the same time, this is the data accumulation of 22 years worth of sales (since 2001). I hold weekly ebay auctions of covers, currently about 120-150 cover lots per week. (I have slowed down some, 10 years ago I used to advertise 200-400 per week. Age does that to you.)

However, Buckacover.com does currently have nearly 100,000 covers in stock, the majority priced from 60c to $1.50. All scanned.

"Did you have any trouble storing them"


No, they are individually sleeved and stored in stock number numerical order in about 120 stacked drawers. Our last additions (we call it an "upload") was on January 12. We added 10,000 new covers on that day. Next one is tentatively scheduled for March 2. Expect 8,000-10,000 new ones on that day.
