ph-first-airmail-stamps-1947-front

Hello, tonight a cover from 70 years ago, I hope you enjoy seeing this.

It was mailed from a place (Candon)  not that far down the coast to where I now live. It has one of the three Airmail stamps for the Republic of The Philippines issued in 1947. The other two were  6c and 40c  values.  This was one of the then new airmail stamps after the Philippine independence from the USA.  The previous Airmail issue was  for the Commonwealth of the Philippines under US administration and was issued in 1941.

Anyway this is SG 643 / Scott C66 and in lovely condition considering it is now 70 years old.

Enjoy your aerophilately.  Michael    cddstamps.com   ( PS  hope you enjoy the web site and my online store if you are looking to fill a few gaps in your collection)
