British First Day Covers & other vintage things web-shop predominantly deals with first day release postal covers. Lucky enough to have family that ran a village post office for over 30 years. 99.9% are in mint as new condition and never been out of the original protective cover.  Because of this we have some super rare covers! Most have special postmarks relative to the theme or commemorative release. We have over 17500 first day covers! These are super collectible and great items to purchase for that special date relative to birthdays, memories, anniversaries or simply to collect. New items are added daily alongside updating of the website which is in progress.

The majority of our covers are presentation type, in most cases have a descriptive card insert included, these were put into protective covers as soon as they were delivered this is why they are in mint or as new condition.
