First day covers

First day covers are special stamped envelopes with a postmark bearing the date the stamp was issued.


FDC (First Day Covers) bear one or more stamps.

The envelope is stamped with a special cancellation related to the subject of the stamp, and the date that the stamp was issued.

Often a special envelope is used called a "cavallino" (little horse), since along with the Poste Italiane logo at the top left, there is picture of a "spirit on horseback".
