That's a great list that has been needed. But I was thinking that there are some ones missing. We have not hit on the Pre-WW1 covers. All the same manufacturer but the list is not complete without them.

 

R.I.A. 1908

R.I.A. 1909

R.I.A. 1910

R.I.A. 1911

 

These are the ones I have. Does anyone have other dates for this period?
