Notes for Beck 429

Greg Ciesielski sent us the scan of a Beck Naval cover for the launching of USS Fox with a neatly printed address.
We have seen printed addresses on Beck covers but not many.  It does improve the overall appearance of the cover.

Collectors subscribing to Mr. Beck's event cover service sent him self-addressed envelopes with stamps on them for printing.

Many collectors used high quality "cotton bond" envelopes and many used peelable address labels because of the neat
appearance.  They removed the labels upon return of the cover in the USPS mail stream.  Some collectors neatly wrote or
 typed their address on each cover.  Others had a their address printed on the envelope.  It was all a matter of personal
taste.  Collectors usually sent Mr. Beck a supply of blank envelopes in lots of 25, 50 or more at a time, so addressing the
envelopes took some time.  Having your address printed on the envelopes made sense.

Today, 30 or 40 years later, the method of addressing is not as important as the overall quality
of the cover.  In our opinion, a neatly addressed Beck cover holds as much value as a similar
 unaddressed cover.
