Royal Hudson private railway mail stamps. Two complete sets of imperforate proof sheets of 8 of the 25c and 50c 1976 issue stamps. These were used to pay for the carriage of mail (mostly tourist mail) on the Royal Hudson train as it ran between North Vancouver and Squamish. Each sheet has an illustration on the reverse side. The 25c value (#R1) has a line drawing of the Royal Hudson steam engine and the 50c value (#R2) has a map of the Royal Hudson's route. A perfect lot for the collector wanting to display both sides of the sheets. Earl Covert's "Strike, Courier and Local Post" catalogue $80.00 as regular mint stamps. Includes a photocopy of the catalogue page. Estimate=
