Canada, Airmail Semi-Officials, 1927-1928. Calling Canadian aerophilatelists; curious Patricia Airways semiofficial on envelope from Greenly Island right after the Bremen fliers landed, autographed by rescue pilot Duke Schiller, Hersa Junkers, and rescued navigator Col Jack Fitzmaurice, a key item EXCEPT, it is two weeks later and Patricia Airways was no longer using their stamps, the address (Capt E K Mulcahy) is an alias for A C Roessler, so what is up with this cover? The stamp is still collectable and the autographs are genuine; the balance were flown on Western Canada Airways, including a 1927 colorful cover from Ottawa, one from Red Lake with an orange reprint of the famous London to London stamp; as well as five with the Western Canada Airways semiofficials; 8 envelopes in total.
Estimate $300 - 400.

Realized $400
