* 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

Following last year's highly popular souvenir sheet featuring historic Canadian cars, in 1994, Canada Post Corporation presents Public Service Vehicles. These specialty streetcars, wagons, trucks and buses provided public transportation, and assisted in the maintenance of roads and in the provision of essential services. Manufactured in Woodstock, Ontario from 1928 to 1939, the Chieftain was a triple-combination pumping engine equipped with a fire pump, water tank, hose and ladders. Smaller equipment included fire extinguishers, axes, lanterns, pike pole, and a powerful searchlight. A six-cylinder gasoline engine powered the truck and its rotary pump. These vehicles were distinguished by their classic gabled hood with horizontal louvres and cast-aluminum radiator.
