Lot 52 Canada #1673, 1680, 2068 2004 Jean-Paul Lemiuex Souvenir Sheet, Fantastic Commercial Usage on 2004 Oversize Airmail Cover to Romania
A VF oversize airmail cover to Romania, sent on what appears, from the cancels to be December 2, 2004. The cover is franked with a complete souvenir sheet of the 2004 Jean Paul Lemieux issue, plus a damaged single 1c bookbinding definitive and a pair of the 25c Leatherworking definitives, whcih together pay the $3.20 oversize airmail rate to Romania. A lovely and scarce contemporary usage of the souvenir sheet to correctly pay postage on an oversize airmail cover to an uncommon destination.
Unitrade does not list post 1947 commercial covers separately, though they do state that single frankings to foreign destinations are worth $10-$15 each, for basic stamps. Our estimate of the value of this cover, given the destination, and the fact that it is a souvenir sheet is $30. The cover offered here is very fine.
