Just wondering if we have anyone in the group who collects Post bands / Postal Wrappers used for newspapers etc ? I have a small Canada collection and am seeking information and the time frame of use. Any help is appreciated.

Apparently Canada is unique in that it produced POSTAGE DUE newspaper wrappers. I don`t have one in my collection.,but still searching .

Do any of our members collect Postal Wrappers from Canada or the US?

Cheryl,

I know of no-one on this site or any other that I am on who collects those.

I also know of no-one 'in person' who collects them.

I also can say I don't believe I have ever seen one in person.



I will be going to a 2-day stamp and cover show a week from today - I will make a note to ask my dealer-friends if they have seen any at the show.


Happy

Hi Cheryl:

I don't collect wrappers, but I do collect covers of philatelic publications and as a result I have two wrappers in this mini collection.

The first is from the Aero Philatelic Digest and the second from India. The later has a hand stamp on the reverse indicating it dates from 1960.

re: Collecting Post Bands or Wrappers

The newspaper wrappers were used in several British Colonies. Here are the countries that have listings for King George VI wrappers as noted in the Higgins & Gage Postal Stationery Catalog. Canada probably has them from this time period. I just did not include it in the list when I compiled it from the catalog.

Australia
Barbados
Bermuda
British Guiana
British Honduras
Cyprus
Grenada
Ireland
Jamaica
Leeward Islands
Mauritius
New Zealand
South Africa
Trinidad & Tobago

Cheryl -

I cannot help in your quest for more information on Canadian wrappers, but I can add to this thread, because I do have a few wrappers in my worldwide collection, including a Canadian QEII PRECANCELLED wrapper scanned below. I have never seen a POSTAGE DUE Canadian wrapper, and my search through eBay came up empty. I would like to see one, if anyone has a scan of one.

I also scanned a Queen Victoria wrapper from India, from my collection.
