Mail Bag! Errol Flynn Rare Envelopes & Stamps!

02 Aug

Interesting Mail Bag item from Gene Ingram:

Hi, David!

I bought 26 – 4 3/16 X 5 3/16 Envelopes that have Errol Flynn preprinted on the back flap from a man’s family that was a friend of Errol Flynn. The man had a business in another country. He would take the stamps from other foreign countries and put them in envelopes marked in pencil with the name of the country and when had had several would send them to Errol for his collection.  The envelopes I have for sale all have stamps in them except one. Some have two or three, some have as many as eight.  All of the stamps are from the 1930’s , 1940’s or earlier, and all have been canceled, they are all listed on Ebay, ERROL FLYNN  “RARE “ ENVELOPE

These are separate eBay Auctions featuring envelopes with various stamps in each envelope. See images of the stamps below contained in these envelopes. Countries stamps include: Spain, Austria, Peru, Portugal, Turkey, Italy & Finland.

Thanks, Gene!

      Nor did I Bob, the man’s family I bought the envelopes from said he had clients all over the world, but they never said what his business was, that would have been very interesting to know!

    An Errol Flynn Fan in Finland saw the envelopes on the blog and ordered 2 of the envelopes, FINLAND and PERU; it goes to show Mr. Flynn still has fans world wide.
