A fine cover sent from Toronto, ON on August 28, 1928 to Chicago, IL. The 5c airmail rate has been paid with a single 1c yellow orange perf 8 vertical coil and a pair of the 2c green dry printing coil, that are tied by a Canadian National Exhibition slogan cancel. Montreal August 29 transit backstamp and August 30 and 31 Chicago receiving backstamps. Purple Golden Jubilee Flight CNE handstamped cachet. There is some edge toning that reduces the grade of the cover from very fine to fine. Unitrade values a pair of the 2c green coil on a commercial cover at $35, so a first flight cover like this should be worth approximately $20.
