  • 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.

About Stamp

Canada's pictorial stamps of 1938, covering the higher values, represented a very definite theme showing Canada's gateways to the north, south, east and west. The precedent established in 1928 of utilizing the higher denominations to illustrate scenes and subjects of Canadian geographical, industrial and historical interest, follows in this series. In an endeavour to maintain artistic balance of the designs, the Post Offices Department decided in the case of the pictorial stamps of this issue to eliminate subject descriptions from the designs. This information appears in English and French in the marginal paper along with the plate number.

Memorial Chamber

Memorial Chamber, Peace Tower of the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa. This subject symbolizes the reverence Canadians hold for their fellow countrymen who lost their lives in the wars that have involved Canada. In the right foreground is the Altar of Remembrance containing the deathless roll of those who died in the wars for Canada and the Empire.
