  • 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

"Daedalus in Flight," with mountains and sea below, from an original oil painting made expressly for this stamp by A. E. Foringer. The background is an adaptation of the view across the Straits of Georgia from Oak Bay near Victoria, British Columbia. The water in the foreground and the high mountains in the background give the illusion of height, adding to the impression of flight which is sought in this design. The mythical character, Daedalus, was believed to be the first man to have conceived the idea of human flight and to have successfully achieved it.


Designed by Herman Herbert Schwartz. Figure engraved by William Adolph. Landscape engraved by Arthur C. Vogel. Picture finished by Edwin H. Gunn.
