* 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

Scene on the Mackenzie River, Northwest Territories. This airmail stamp is a composite, with one of the Mackenzie River shallow-draft stern- wheelers-actually the S.S. Distributor-somewhere along the river. In the left foreground the group of men carrying supplies to and from the landing stage has been adapted from a photograph showing similar activities at Aklavik, near the mouth of the river. Also in the foreground a twin- engined monoplane, equipped with floats, has been introduced to contrast the old and new methods of transporting mail along the Mackenzie River. This is one of Canada's northern gateways.


Designed by Herman Herbert Schwartz. Picture engraved by Arthur C. Vogel.
