669 O/CVR/PC Orbs 53 image3-W1 TO 3-W14 WINNIPEG 3 ring orb collection, consisting of 290 stamps, 104 covers, 97 registered covers, and 201 registered A-R cards somewhat sorted. Winnipeg orbs need considerably more research work to sort them out, which Jim never quite completed. He has identified 14 different hammers ranging from 1909 to 1972, and has considerably sorted them out, but they need more work. Note 3-W5 AM/OC 27/20 as a receiving back stamp on an OHMS cover. This is the only reported example of this very rare orb. Also note other scarce to rare hammers. Since some examples are unsorted, we offer the entire collection as one lot, leaving it to the successful buyer to continue this work. All sorts of interesting material in this lot.

Other better items noted were 2 registered, including a long cover with French RV-10 registration handstamp (RF G) and oval RV-16 purple ink back stamp (RF F) that has a Lingard CV of $75 and $150), a June 15 cover with the 'The Royal Train/Canada' embossed on cover as used by those on the Royal Trains, the Royal Train postmaster's autograph of a May 15 FDC from a Montreal post office official, a MP's mail out cover with enclosure, plus about 15 attractive cachets, including a W.R. Smith, etc. The 1951 covers include 4 French ones and original of a post office memo stating Royal Train PO would not service philatelic mail. Lot also has a copy of Lingard's privately published 23-page 1997 monograph that prices 1939 Royal Train cancels by date/time mark and a copy of Stamps, magazine from May 2, 1953 with an article by Barna. There is also a thick file folder of photocopied documentation on the Royal trains including the 84 page 1939 official arrangements publication listing members of the Royal Party and all the events at the stops across Canada; 31 pages of post office archival material showing proof strikes, Ross's operating instruction, purple ink and canceling machine issues, the Wilmore report on the Perfect canceling machine's use at Washington, etc.; 60+pages of articles on the 1939 and 1951 Royal Train post offices by Jamieson, Fortin, Tucker, Sessions, Hill, Rankin, Wilkins (PM on 1951 Royal Train), Copeland (Asst.

This collection has some scarce Royal Train cancels and would be most useful to any Royal Train collector or exhibitor. A somewhat similar collection of 19 1939 and 9 1951 Royal Train covers but of an overall lesser quality, sold for $900 in our October 2016 sale (lot 1092) and this one should be worth at least as much.
