If you find a site called postbeeld and enter royal wedding or similar you should find a long list of countries that issued stamps to commemorate the wedding.
I would assume they all issued first day covers.
Is the one you show French?

Looks like stamp A has been in the sun too long. Faded.

|Thread: Chile postal stationery|
This is a Chilean prestamped envelope from the 1907-1910 series.
Postmarked 14th April 1911 but no address.
Is this the equivalent of CTO (cancelled to order) for stamps?
Otherwise why would they postmark a blank envelope?
|Thread: HMSO perforations|
I don't consider perfins as "damaged stamps".
I and a lot of other people have collections of these stamps and consider them a valid part of our collections.
Agreed not a lot of value in them but an interesting field for study.
|Thread: Displaying covers.|
Thanks for the lead. I ordered a box of "medium" corners,20mm wide from Herma.
Just the job, a lot easier to handle than ordinary photo corners but without hiding any of the cover.
Again thanks for the help.

|Thread: Displaying covers.|
I have a collection of First Day Covers which I keep in albums made for the job.
I am now collecting "postal history" and would like to "write up" the covers.
Would any members please advise on their way of attaching covers to sheets of paper.
I have had a go with a few clear photo corners but I could only find very small ones.
Not being the most dexterous person with my fingers I am struggling.
Could anyone suggest and alternative method or the name of a supplier of larger corner mounts?
|Thread: SG numbers required for Chilean stamps.|
Thanks Brian, that will do at this stage. I have a copy of S.G. part 20 but seem to have mislaid it at the moment.
Could anyone help with S.G. numbers for these three 1970 Chilean stamps?
|Thread: Spain: Isabella 2 - Identification is needed|
Just had a look on stampworld.com and I found an issue of January 1865 which shows there was a 12c blue/rose stamp.
Stampworld don't give any equivalent catalogue numbers but this might give you a lead.
|Thread: Strange Postbox|
Picture taken by a friend while on holiday on the Hertfordshire/Buckinghamshire border.
Anyone know what this might be about?
|Thread: British Fine/Used Wanted|
A quick scan on ebay uk shows several sets of used sets of the stamp area you are interested in.
It's a bit difficult obviously to tell the quality from the scans but from the prices shown it would pay you to buy the set rather than look for individual stamps.
When I get chance I will have a look through my G.B. spares.

|Thread: Some stuff I've been up to, and upcoming...|
Don't know if you are just looking at current issuing countries or past ones?
If you are interested in past ones try dcstamps.com
It might put you off but I certainly found it of interest.
|Thread: Could there be a reversed multiple crown watermark ???|
Can you show the watermark? I know these are difficult to see at times and probably very difficult to show on a scan.
Probably a silly question but how could you tell if the watermark was reversed?
The multiple crown watermark is just the crowns and nothing else to distinguish which way round it is.
|Thread: Perforation error on the 22p Flame red|
Had a look on a well known online auction site. There were several mis-perforated machins for sale but I couldn't see the 22p red.
Maybe you have found one of a very few example. Some of the stamp were making a bit but not large sums.
Might be of interest to put it on there and see what it makes.
|Thread: SG727 Issue date|
Just looked in SG Great Britain concise catalogue and only info is date of issue 1969.
|Thread: "Via Andes" on Chilean cover.|
That makes sense, what confused me at first is that Valparaiso is on the coast so why go over the Andes? But it's a long trip across the Pacific then across Asia and Europe.
