75 Canada #926A VF selection of 80 VF mint NH examples of the short lived 1987 issue 36c plum QEII definitive, including three matched sets of blank corner blocks (these don't come with inscriptions). The October 1 issue definitive was delayed repeatedly (from May 6, 1987) due to production difficulties and not released until near the end of the 36c rate period. Thus, this value was current for just three months, during which time the 1987 Christmas stamps would have seen most of the usage.

Beginning after the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, and lasting until 1949 (four years after World War II had ended), Canadians of Japanese heritage were removed from their homes and businesses and sent to internment camps in the B.C. interior, and to farms and internment camps across Canada. Camp living conditions were usually poor, and Tashme, on Highway 3 just east of Hope, was notorious for the camp's particularly harsh conditions. An interesting trio of postal history items, seldom seen in today's market. Estimate $500.00 $210

116 Canada Covers British Columbia Airways CL-44 Semi Official Airmail stamp on non-philatelic commercial flight cover between Victoria and Vancouver.

The AAMC catalogue states that "Regular flights occurred after August 3rd on a daily basis until the single aircraft operated by the company was lost at sea on August 25th. Cover franked with CL-44 dated between August 4th and August 25th carry a premium over the value shown for the inaugural flight." An interesting BC airmail item!

3850
117 Canada Covers Duo of interrupted mail items. The first cover from Toronto on April 7th 1954 to Vancouver, with a back stamp which reads "Salvaged From T.C.A. Wreck". This cover was on board the infamous "Moose Jaw" on April 8th in which a Royal Canadian Air Force Harvard trainer collided with a Trans-Canada Air Line North Star passenger plane in the skies over Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, scattering wreckage and debris over a three-mile radius in the city's northeast end. The cover has the tell tale singe marks from the mail bags catching fire. Of note, the cover bears a 5c QEII Wilding Issue stamp perfined NYL (New York Life), and would make an interesting addition to any QEII or Perfin collection. The second cover of the lot originated in Beverly Hills, California destined for London, Ontario and bears the handstamp "Damaged in Railroad Fire." This interesting cover needs some research to find out more about the Railway incident, but may be a diamond in the rough for a philatelic sleuth. Estimate $150.00 $28
