* 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.
The Canadian International Philatelic Exhibition, CAPEX 78, will be held at the Canadian National Exhibition Grounds in Toronto from June 9 to 18, 1978. This is the nation's second international stamp exhibition, the first having been held in 1951. CAPEX 78 will commemorate the centennial of Canada's entry into the Universal Postal Union. Sponsored by the Royal Philatelic Society of Canada, under the patronage of the Fédération Internationale de Philatélie and under the auspices of the Federacion Interamericana de Filatelia, the show will be the largest and most important in Canadian postal history. To herald this important congress of philatelists and collectors, the Post Office has chosen to issue a stamp-on-stamp design featuring a pair of one of Canada's classic stamps: the12-penny Queen Victoria of 1851. The Queen Victoria classics, from fine examples now owned by the National Postal Museum, Ottawa, have been engraved by Robert Couture. The intaglio is printed in the original colour (black) over a light background. Design is by Carl Brett of Toronto.
