B.C. collectors, does this recovered collection belong to you?

Officers with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) in Prince George, B.C., are seeking the owner of what they call a “rare coin and stamp collection.”

On Aug. 3, members of the Prince George RCMP found the collection, which includes old Whitman coin albums for several Canadian denominations plus at least one stamp album.

“We are looking to reunite the owners of this collection with their belongings. If you can describe to us what other coins and stamps are in this collection, we would be happy to return them to you,” said Corporal Jennifer Cooper, referring to two images shown nearby.

Police also recovered at least one stamp album.

If the collection belongs to you, or you know its owner, you’re asked to contact the Prince George RCMP at 1-250-561-3300 (quote file number “2021-29114”).
