The Canadian Stamp Dealers Association (CSDA) has reported a first-day cover (FDC) theft in the Ottawa area.
According to the Ottawa collector who fell victim to the theft, someone broke into his or her home on March 28 while the homeowners were asleep upstairs.
Five binders and a plastic blue Lighthouse-branded bag were taken. Each binder contained between 20 and 25 British FDCs – about 125 altogether – dated from 2012 to about 2016. The covers were all addressed to the victim’s former Bowmanville address.
The victim also believes some British “Post & Go” stamps were also stolen.
If anyone knows the whereabouts of the stolen material, they’re asked to contact the CSDA via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
