Fred's Anecdotal Note
The ever-appealing Ruddy Duck (also known as the 'Blue Bill") makes an appearance on this handpainted MILFORD. A very nice Day of Issue pictorial postmark ties the new stamp to the cover. A woodland caribou approaches the river to ford it as the male Ruddy swims in the foreground.
This cover has the distinct look of the Canadian North Woods with
deep green spruce trees and deep blue water plus the bright red maple leaf flag. Only 125 covers were produced in this limited edition.
