* 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.

About Stamp

French Canadian's poet laureate, Louis-Honoré Fréchette, was born 150 years ago, and to honour this anniversary Canada Post Corporation is issuing two se tenant commemorative stamps featuring Fréchette and one of his contemporaries, Archibald Lampman. Best known for his nature poetry, Lampman was a postal employee in Ottawa for most of his working life. Fréchette is famous for his patriotic verse and grandiose style. A souvenir card will be issued featuring Fréchette for the PHILEXFRANCE 89 show. Toronto illustrator René Milot created the stamps honouring Fréchette and Lampman. He painted each poet's portrait and placed it in a background setting reflective of each poet's work.
