    The previous thread "postal stationery" has become to extensive.Time to start a more limited thread.
    I am going to start with some uncommon,rather rare envelopes:
    Burma JU 1.jpg
    Peacock overprint by the Burmese Independence Army,issued in May 1942.
    At the time Burma was occupied by the Imperial Japanese Army.
    Because the King´s image was embossed,different types of the overprints are
    difficult to recognize.

    Burma JU 3.jpg
    Also issued in May 1942,this envelope is overprinted with a Henzada II - type
    peacock.This type of overprint exists on stationery only.Stamps overprinted
    with this type were produced unauthorized after the war.

    Burma JU 5.jpg
    issued June 1st,1942
    The overprint reads: JAPANESE POSTS & TELES DEPT *MOULMEIN*
    Centre: POSTAGE PAID
    The handstamped R in a triangle was a security measure.

    At the end of WW II Britain reoccupied Burma and put the country under
    military administration.
    The 1938 defintives were overprinted with MILY ADMN and the one Anna
    envelope was also overprinted and revalued.
    To be valid each envelope was personally hand signed by one of the
    four postal administration officers:

    U Burma 14.jpg I had overlooked this envelope,issued in July 1943.
    It was overprinted again,on the already overprinted one (peacock)
    from May 1942.
    The original envelope (without overprint) was issued in 1939.

    I never had payed much attention to envelopes with imprinted stamps,I received from Austria.I thought,like in Germany,the imprinted stamps were images of
    regular commemoratives.But when I took a closer look,I found that no such
    commemorative stamps had been issued.
    UM Ö 83.jpg
    Issued 1983 (sent Jan.28th,1994),this one shows Bad Aussee in Styria.
    The 4 S. domestic letter-rate was upgraded by a 3 S. stamp for international
    shipment.

    Nice cancels on this cover too! With reference to the flowers in the lower left, was the envelope an item from an Austrian tourist set showing Austrian scenes?
