* 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.
Canada's oldest car, a steam-powered buggy, was conceived by Henry Seth Taylor, a skilled jeweller, watchmaker and inventor. He unveiled his new vehicles at a fair in Stanstead, Quebec in 1867. Curious onlookers became sceptics when a steam hose burst and both the inventor and invention were engulfed in steam. Although the carriage had to be pushed home, history had been made. This 15-mph vehicle became Canada's first propelled car and one of the earliest steam cars in North America. Taylor continued to demonstrate his steam buggy but the idea of steam-powered carriages was not a popular one. It continued to be used as the only option available until electric and internal combustion engines appeared in the 1890s. Taylor's buggy soon crashed due to a slight oversight - no brakes!
