we are trying to establish how many letters there are around using the half crown express fee to France Nov 11th 1919 to May 10th 1920 and also the 2/- plus 6d extra from May 11th 1920 to July 21st 1920. Any scans or information would be much appreciated.
regards
James

let me try again - my friend researching this area has of yet come up with only 11 covers from the first and three from the second period. Enclosed to whet your appetites his pi├Ęce de resistance from the first period which does not seem to be mentioned anywhere.
Any information or scans appreciated. Also does anyone know why the airmail express stamp was sometimes red and sometimes black?
regards
James

Jim,
I can only provide the attached. As you can see the addressee's name and address has been excised. The cover is dated 13 Jan 1920.

James and Harvey,

In the Vivien Sussex collection of Express Mail offered by Grosvenor (20/11/2007) there were 3 lots of this kind (80, 82, 83). I suspect that you have already seen them, but just in case:
