DEFINITION OF A POSTAL STATIONERY

To recognize a postal stationery, it is essential to differentiate it from a postal document. To define it perfectly and to the point of it, it is not easy matter to achieve. In short, one could define it as follows: "the postal stationery is a philatelic document which is provided or which was equipped with an imprinted postage value". This definition is supported by what the specialists in this field formulated.

"Un entier postal est un timbre-poste imprimé sur un support servant à la correspondance ou constatant la perception d'une taxe postale". Les Entiers postaux de France et Monaco - Jean Storch et Robert Françon.

" Ganzsachen sind Umschläge, Briefe, Streifbänder, Postkarten und Postanweisungen put eingedruktem Wertstempel ". Einführung zum Michel-Ganzsachen-Katalog Europa - Schwaneberger Verlag GmbH München.

Te postal stationery forms a whole whose various ingredients can be used for the construction of a thematic or topic collection. The postal document does not has this possibility and thus cannot as such entering in consideration. Under the part "relatives", we will see that the exception confirms the rule.
