About Stamp

On the 1st April, 1935, the contract for the manufacture of Canadian postage stamps and postal stationery reverted to the Canadian Bank Note Company, Limited, Ottawa. On 6th May, 1935, King George V celebrated the twenty-fifth anniversary of his accession to the throne in 1910. To commemorate this Silver Jubilee, Canada joined with the other countries of the Commonwealth to honour the sovereign, himself a keen philatelist, by the issue of six special postage stamps.
