First Day Cover - Vatican City - 1965 - Stampa Filatelica
First Day Cover
This first day cover likely was issued by Stampa Filatelica. The cachet features a reproduction of an anonymous miniature portrait of Dante from a fifteenth-century manuscript (MS Riccardiano 1040) now in the Biblioteca Riccardiana in Florence, Italy. Above the cachet is "The Golden Series / First Day Cover" and below is "VII EXPLETO SAECULO / AB ORTU DANTIS ALAGHERII" (7th century since the birth of Dante Alighieri). The first day cover is part of the "Golden Series" (no. 62) and the statement "Supervised by Vittorio lo Bianco" appears on the envelope's reverse.
