Online Auction Description
This cover is from Turkey. It is unusual in that it has a cheesecloth like lining inside for extra protection, kind of like modern Tyvek shipping envelopes. I feel that this would make this item too expensive for everyday use. So it is possible it was used for important government documents or some similar use.
Note: I have just noticed a sharp crease that doesn't show up very well in the scan. It is on the 001A view and starts 1-3/4" up from lower left corner and goes at 45 degrees towards the bottom edge, ending 1/2" short of the bottom
NOTE: After describing this item to a collector in Greece, he said it was very valuable and not to take an amount less the $300.00 for it. Other than that I know very little about the item. More recently an additional collector who knows this type of Turkish cover has seen many similar ones but none like this one. Other than that, I know not much about scarcity or collectability value.
