Canada Semi-Official Airmail - 1927 Mint NH Western Canada Airways

Before the Canadian government began issuing airmail stamps in 1928, private companies created stamps to pay for postage on their planes. This rarely-seen issue from Western Canada Airways was sold at airline offices and post offices in Winnipeg and Western Canada, paying the postage for airmail delivery in Canada’s sparsely-populated northwest. Quantity printed 36,600. Canada #CL40
