Philatelic Tips
Philatelic value (and often its REAL value) of an item like so-called ‘postal entire’ is higher when the item has gone through the postal circulation (was postally used). The registered “R” correspondence is valued higher than the ‘normal’ letters. The “R” letter is more difficult to get as they are rarer.

Glossary terms:
Postally Used: A stamp or cover that has seen legitimate postal use, as opposed to one that has been canceled to order (CTO) or favor-canceled. Postally used suggests that an item exists because it was used to carry a personal or business communication, without the sender thinking of creating an item to be collected.
Entire: An intact piece of postal stationery, in contrast to a cut-out of the printed design (e. g. envelopes on which the stamp has been engraved). This term is sometimes used also in reference to an intact cover or folded letter.
