img20200607_11113741.jpgIn a mammoth sort out, I have stumbled across an old OHMS cover from The Paymaster General

I cannot identify the address completely and there are numerous amendments and additions.

The back of the envelope is covered with further scribblings and date stamps from Paris, Chambery etc.

I would imagine it to be worth something and would like to know thoughts etc

Any help would be appreciatedimg20200607_11101751.jpg

Great cover for those of us who like the challenge of such things. I would list all the datestamps in order to work out the routes etc. Whilst the "information content" is attractive it has two things going against it in value terms unfortunately. Firstly condition and secondly size. It will take a double size sheet to mount up and annotate. It may not be worth as much as you think sadly. It doesn't look like it will tidy up nicely. Unless you can identify the recipient as "famous" which could make a difference.
