Canada Covers

1939 Royal Visit / Royal Train collection of 44 covers neatly mounted on home-made album pages within a binder. A nice variety of May 15th - FDC dated covers (including several better cachets) and non FDC dated flag cancels (corresponding with Royal Train stops). Also included are examples of the 1939 USA stop-over and one later 1951 Royal Train visit cover. Of particular interest is a June 7th (1pm) cover addressed to Victoria BC with letter written on Royal Train stationery sent by Archie Wills, City Editor of the Victoria Daily News newspaper. Estimate
