PS : Any stamp-sellers etc are also welcome to DM me.

I have hundreds of full Union of SA covers.

Mostly late 1940's to early 1950's, but also earlier one's.

Should be some rare post marks because many of them are from smaller areas (i.e not just big cities like JHB, CT, etc).

Hi,
It's stationery, not stationary. Which spelling did you use in your searches? :)
Cheers

I don't have the catalogue but have a 75 page pdf of the postal history of the union of South Africa. Let me know how I can send it to you if interested.
