1898 (c) OHMS parcel piece ('FROM THE / GEOLOGICAL SURVEY DEPARTMENT, OTTAWA, CANADA.') to Vienna, Austria, franked at $1.02 by 1868-90 Large Queen 15c slate-purple x4, 1893 Widow's Weeds 20c vermilion, 1897-98 Maple Leaf 2c violet, 6c brown x2 and 8c orange, tied by several strikes of the fancy Crown in Circle cancel and three strikes of the 'OTTAWA ONT. / 2' roller cancel. The piece reconstructed for presentation purposes (label and stamped pieces joined), but very obviously forming a coherent whole with typical minor blemishes associated with the rigours of parcel post. An outstanding showpiece item of great rarity and interest. [N.B. The address panel is endorsed with the signature of G.M. Dawson, one of Canada's pre-eminent scientists, and director of the Geological Survey of Canada from 1895 until his death in 1901. The label is addressed to J. Dörfler, the famous Austrian botanist and plant collector/dealer.]
