J.C. Wilson Advertising

A new page has been added featuring some of J.C. Wilson’s advertising mailing inserts, postcard-sized items which were likely added to envelopes to alert customers to new wares.

J.C. Wilson Samples

This J.C. Wilson Rule Britannia cover was mailed to Stephens & Son In San Diego, California with a 1¢ QV Numeral stamp, cancelled wth a Montreal roller cancel, paying the rate for samples, rather than the 2¢ letter rate. The cover bears the rubber stamp “Samples from J.C. Wilson & Co. Montreal”. The back bears a partial receiver cancel. The Covers Rates page has been updated to the current web site format.
