* Notes about these prices:
  • They are currently in beta mode, meaning that they should not be relied upon yet as a source of truth and could change frequently. Please notify CPS if you come across values that do not make sense.
  • They are not based on catalogue values but on current dealer and auction listings. The reason for this is that catalogues tend to over-value stamps.
  • They are average prices and might not be fully accurate. The actual value of your stamp may be slightly above or below the listed value, depending on the overall condition of your stamp.

About Stamp

With the exception of the war issues of 1942-43 and certain special commemorative stamps, all pictorial postage stamps issued between 1927 and 1945 have illustrated subjects relating to Canada's history, geography, agriculture, and natural resources. The end of the war provided desirable opportunity to use subjects emphasizing the new industrial importance of Canada. In 1946 the Department decided to replace Canada's wartime pictorial postage stamps with an issue intended to provide a pictorial survey of Canada's primary industries and raw materials. The issue placed emphasis on the reconversion of Canadian industry to a peacetime basis.
