"The Story of Canada" First Day Covers. Very expensive collection of specially prepared deluxe First Day Covers in four volumes. This "The Story of Canada" collection consists of 84 different gold foil cacheted FDCs, all mounted on a full colour illustrated page with a story on the event being commemorated, along with a VF mint NH Canadian (or Newfoundland) stamp also associated with the event. A complete run of all the covers, uncommonly found as many of the subscribers ended the acquisition of these pricey items as the cost became excessive ($9.95 each makes for an original cost of $835.80 for this lot). One of the slipcases with a couple bumps and bruises. A great collection for the fan of Canadian history and scarce cachet types for the FDC cachet collector. Estimate
