About Stamp

In pursuance of its policy of making Canadian postage stamp issues bilingual, the Post Office Department issued, late in 1933 and early in 1934, a new series of postage due stamps with inscriptions in both French and English. These stamps have a dual official purpose and may be properly affixed to mail matter only to the Post Office Department : (1) to serve as a notice of the amount due on insufficiently prepaid mail matter, and (2) to serve as a receipt for the amount due which is collected before delivery. A design from a drawing. Across the top of the design are the words "Postage Due." Below this is the numeral value in a rectangular tablet; the word "Cent" is below the numeral value. Beneath this are the two French words, "A Percevoir," and at the bottom of the design is the name "Canada."
