Lot 6108

Canada, Stockbook Collection of Better Firsts, 1932-64, be they First Day or First Flight covers, this binder has 136 of them; starts with a series of variously franked cacheted covers celebrating Washington's bicentennial, followed by 6¢ Airs and Ottawa Conference overprint; our collector liked Airs, as there's a steady stream of later issues' First Days (along with Air Special Delivery) items; nine First Days with Special Delivery adhesives added (a scarce find!); various First Flights (one with a Maritime & Newfoundland Airways Semi-Official); some Newfoundland First Days, then back to Canada with Silver Jubilee, War and Peace issues, 1935 Pictorials (to the $1!), Royal Visit plate blocks, etc., etc.; some interesting cachets, some earlies postmaster-signed, F.-V.F. or better, the kind of old-time accumulation you don't often find today; see them all online. Shipping charges apply - weight 4.2 lbs.
