AGE : I know those covers you have are 30, 40, 50 years old, but they’re not Hard to believe, but it’s already been some 80 years since the end of World War II, so it’s not that difficult to find covers well over half a century old. They look old; they feel old Still, you could find a cover from the s, and it might not be of any great interest to collectors. Keep in mind that there have been billions of covers issued over the last years, so that dandy little s cover you’ve just come across might well be an interesting item of conversation when the relatives come over, but to a collector it may be of no interest at all.
Most Pre-War covers aren’t that sought after. The s and beyond Those covers may be readily collectible for other reasons, but not for their age. The vast majority of businesses advertised on matchcovers are gone.
Businesses are hit and miss affairs, here today The average lifespan for a business is 10 years! The fact that that hotel burned down 30 years ago or that restaurant went belly up back in the ’50s doesn’t add anything to the value of that cover.
There are exceptions, of course But, it was the disasters that give those covers special value, and those are rare exceptions. Covers in Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, etc. Plus, foreign covers are often in ‘non-standard’ sizes, which makes them difficult to house. And, most of them are not in the most desirable categories to start with. I mean, what’s a collector supposed to do with a laundromat cover from New Zealand?
On the other hand, something such as a cover from the Abu Dhabi Sheraton [ which would be in English] has ‘exotic’ working for it, rather than against it. There are also various categories in Foreign that would always be of some interest Cigarettes, Airlines, Girlies, Die-Cuts are the most common, although Foreign Military and some others would qualify, as well. Collectors are looking for unstruck, undamaged covers.
The matches, themselves, are almost always removed by the collector, so if yours have already been carefully taken out, there’s no problem with that. Also, if the cover is old and in a desirable category, it may still be wanted, even in used condition [collectors have to be practical, after all].
JUNK COVERS : Even though there is always someone out of the almost 8 billion people in the world who wants anything, there are a few types of covers that are basically considered ‘junk’ within the hobby. Nationals Nationals : are covers that have no single specific location city and state , as seen here in the three covers above.
Not all Nationals are junk, however. As you would expect, most Airline and Railroad covers, for example, would have no specific location, but they’re very collectible covers.
Non-Categories Non-Categories : There are covers that simply raise no interest at all among collectors, in general, such as the three pictured above. Non-academic schools, Auction services, Furniture stores, Electrical supply companies, Chemical companies, etc.
There’s nothing stopping you from collecting in said categories The point is, that, although the covers you have may look special to you , they’re probably going to be considered run-of-the-mill material or less to collectors. So, don’t get your hopes up But, even still, there are some treasures As with other collectible hobbies, this one has its treasures, and, as with other collectible hobbies, you just have to know what to look for. So, now that we’ve narrowed down what ‘old’ is, let’s look at covers from the c.
From a collecting standpoint based on age, that era can then be broken down to: c. How do you find the treasures, if there are any?
Well, the first guideline is readily obvious. Notice how the American striker on the left is vertically wider than the Lone Star striker on the right. Another item to check is the overall length of the matchcover. Before the advent of vending machines, most old covers were longer than what we’re used to today.
Look at this example: Compare the regular length of this s Lone Star cover with this “extra-long” XL or “tall” old Federal cover from the early s. Any XLs you come across you can immediately put aside as keepers, as well. After looking at the striker width and the cover length, you really have to start knowing what you’re looking for from this point on.
You don’t have to be knowledgeable to know you’ve struck treasure when you find a cover with Babe Ruth on the outside and a calendar on the inside.
Other than that, however, you’ll need to become familiar with manufacturers, manumarks, and footers see Reference Publications. Acorn Match Co. Advance Match Co. Advertizit Match Co. All Trades Match Co. Art Match Co. Atlantic Match Co. Atlas Match Co. Book Match Co. Circle Match Co.
Coast Book Match Co. WI Crown Match Co. Empire Match Co. Federal Match Co. Hellman Match Co. Hercules Match Co. Standard Match Co.
Star Match Co. Union Match Co. Note: I maintain the listings on all of these old covers. Each list identifies the covers that are known to exist, and each list is updated annually or semi-annually, as needed. The list may include only a few covers or thousands, depending on how prolific the manufacturer was.
If you’re going to collect such covers, you may find such listings useful. See Lists. And, after all that is said and done, there is still one very notable group of old treasures not yet covered by any of the above characteristics.
They don’t carry an identifying footer, weren’t made by an old defunct company, aren’t XLs, and may or may not have the wide strikers. These are the Group I covers. They’re distinguishable from other covers because they don’t carry any advertising, and they were issued in sets, some of which had over covers each.
There were sets of movie stars, football and hockey players, radio personalities These covers are as good as gold, often selling for at least several dollars each, and often quite a bit more, but it’s easy to get overwhelmed in this area since there are so many. Here are three examples of Group I covers: two Bridge covers outside and inside and a one of the Football covers.
One more word in parting. Many of the Group I covers bear the word “Colgate,” either in the manumark or elsewhere, usually on the inside.
Colgate was a Diamond Match Co. You don’t seem to have any of those Golden Oldies?! Well, I don’t have a vintage Rolls Royce either, but there are other types of Treasure besides just old! A cover can be more recent and be in high demand [rarely, I’ll admit].
Covers can be in demand because of their subject material. Throughout the decades, there have always been some ‘categories’ which have been hot and some that have been cold Many to all of the covers in some of these categories will bring less than a dollar, but substantially more than the. If you have a lot of them, that adds up!
In some of the categories discussed here, the covers will bring a dollar or more each. Keep in mind, though, that in every category, there are those covers that are very common; everyone has them; and there will be little demand for such. Here are at least most of the perennially wanted categories:. And there are others, such as Full-Length Diners and Contours, for example, but this is about it. There may be categories that become very sought-after because they’re new, but that popularity eventually dwindles as the ‘newness’ wears off, especially if they cease to be produced.
The categories I’ve described above have withstood the test of time. A parting note: Interestingly enough, the two hottest categories in the hobby in recent years were comprised of some of the cheapest covers to be had Tobacco cigarettes, cigars, etc. Value had nothing to do with their popularity; it’s simply that these were just about the last two categories in which the domestic industry was regularly cranking out new issues They had to be the less commons ones, though.
For example, in the Casino category, new covers from the Indian casinos were initially much more sought after than those from the established casinos in Reno, Las Vegas, and Atlantic City. Everyone already had the latter covers.
