Edward & Admiral "Olive Bistre / Straw / Yellow Ochre". A postal history grouping showing the range of greenish yellow shades of both the Edward & Admiral issue 7c stamps on PEI (Prince Edward Island) covers dated between 1904 - 1919. An original find, having never seen the market previously coming from estate clean out in Prince Edward Island. All but two covers have the single franking 7c, which pays the intended domestic registered rate. The latest two covers (dated 1917 / 1919 have an additional 1c Admiral added to account for rate change / war tax). There are 10 Edward & 15 Admiral covers in the group, with many better postmarks including Kingsborough, Esdraelon, Bay Fortune, O’Leary Station, Port Hill, Hunter River and Tryon. Estimate =
