bonnieb@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Most stamp collectors collect stamps without envelopes or letters, but some collect letters that predate postage. Before the first U.S. postage stamp was printed in 1847, the recipient of a letter paid the postage. If he never picked up the letter, someone else could pay the fee and get it. "People were dying for reading material," stamp dealer Rodney Rodgers said. He displayed an addressed envelope with a cancellation, called a stampless cover, sent from Boston to Taunton, Mass.
