* 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 PSG 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.

About Stamp

The "Commission préparatoire" or World's Executive Committee of the International Postal Union held its sessions in Ottawa from 18th May to 28th June, 1933. This committee was constituted after World War I to deal with innumerable problems of international postal service arising after that upheaval. The Commission performed a valuable service in simplifying objectives by reducing the agenda of the various World Postal Congresses to the minimum.
