About Stamp

Beginning with this issue, the dies of all Canadian postage stamps bore a date indicating the year of manufacture of each design. Thus in this series, the year of manufacture is incorporated in the design of the stamp in an inconspicuous manner. The name of the manufacturer appears in the margin of the sheet.
