NEW STUFF, FEBRUARY 2016

I ATTENDED A BOURSE IN REGINA WHERE I NOT ONLY PICKED UP SOME SPACE FILLERS, BUT ALSO GOT SOME ADVICE AND HELP WITH PLATING PENNY BLACKS. WHAT YOU SEE HERE IS A SCOTT # 6.  IT WAS A REALLY GOOD BUY WITH JUST A SMALL FOLD ON THE LHS.  NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD SEE ONE!

GOOD NEWS

THIS IS NOT A FAKE.  SCOTT VALUES IT AT $3000 +/-.  MUST GET A CERTIFICATE.

WEEPING PRINCESS

ANOTHER OF THOSE THAT ARE RARELY FOR SALE.  I WAS TOLD IT WAS A VERY POPULAR ITEM.

111xx

It would seem that the 111xx  would be an easy find.  I have had no luck ubtil now.  Plenty of 112xx but for a $5.00 stamp ?????  Go figure!

JACQUES CARTIER 'SCARFACE'

WITH A POWERFUL LENS, THE SCAR IS VISIBLE.  I WOULD LIKE TO GET A 'BURR ON SHOULDER'. TOO.

MAJOR COLOURS OF THE PENNY RED

THE SCAN IS PROBABLY NOT ACCURATE BUT GIVES AN IDEA OF A COLLECTOR'S PROBLEMS.

TO REGISTER A PARCEL OR LETTER

ROSE-CARMINE ANYONE??

ALL CANADIAN COLLECTRS SHOULD HAVE AT LEAST ONE?

PROBABLY THE MOST ICONIC CANADA STAMP.

NOT THE USUAL COLOUR!

V. RARE SHADE OF 1870 #33 CV$250

A METHOD TO STOP FORGERY?

USA HAVE USED A GRILL FOR SOME EARLIER ISSUES..  IF THIS STAMP DIDN'T HAVE A GRILL YHE CV $1500!!

SWOLLEN BREAST VARIETY

BOUND TO GET GIGGLES WHEN YOU ASK IF THEY HAVE A SWOLLEN BREAST!!

BROKEN 'A' IN FLANDERS' FIELD

USUALLY 1st. IN SHEET.  COMMEMORATES JOHN MCRAE WRITER OF THE POEM IN FLANDERS' FIELD

NO LONGER ISSUED

UNDELIVERABLE MAIL WAS SENT TO THE DEAD LETTER OFFICE.  IF THERE WAS AN ADDRESSEE IT MIGHT BE RETURNED TO SENDER.

REVENUE STAMPS

SOMETIMES CALLED FIISCAL SYAMPS THEY WERE USED TO COLLECT TAXES ON TOBACCO, LIQUOR, HUNTING LICENCES, LEGAL FEES, ETC.

WELL, THAT'S IT FOR A WHILE.
