The reader is reminded that this is an eBay study. Other wrappers of Chile would have appeared for sale on other Internet sites as well as sold by the traditional auction houses, bourses and dealers. Collectors with information about listings and sales from these other sources are invited to share their knowledge to develop more robust information about this area of postal stationery.
There were 73 examples of E1 and 28 examples of E2 recorded in the database. Perhaps the most remarkable observation was the diversity of country destinations covering 21 countries.
