The Dr. Paul M. Cere Collection of Semi-Official Air Posts of Canada -
November 14, 2017
The Air Post Semi-Official stamps of Canada, 1918-1934, are among the most
popular, and elusive, stamps issued by any entity in the early pioneer
aviation years. This collecting area provides intellectual challenges, with
the vast array of issues produced by private companies and Aero clubs to
frank mail carried on the early private flights throughout Canada.
It is exactly these challenges that attracted Dr. Paul M. Cere to assemble
what is likely one of the finest and most important collections – both
stamps and their usage on cover – ever formed. Dr. Cere concentrated his
efforts on buying scarce and rare items, including listed and unlisted
varieties. He would often buy more than one example of a rarity, simply
because he knew another might not come along for decades. Many of the most
elusive stamps and covers in the Cere collection were acquired from such
famous collections as those formed by Mac Goldberg, Ernie Wall and Robert
Cunliffe. He was particularly fond of the stamps of Patricia Airways and
Exploration Company, with these overprinted stamps providing numerous
combinations of errors and varieties.
