Stamp Values/Prices (Beta Mode*)
Mint - Never Hinged - Very Fine
Used - Very Fine
* 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.
At one time or another, the forts of Canada have housed and defended Indians, settlers, missionaries, fur traders, policemen and soldiers. Each remaining fort is a monument to the forces which created and preserved Canada. The British built the Fort at Coteau-du-Lac during the War of 1812 to guard a canal and storehouses on the St. Lawrence River upstream from Montreal. The Forts across Canada stamps were designed by Rolf Harder of Montreal. Supporting the linework, which gives a wealth of interesting detail, the simple flat shapes of colour capture the atmosphere of each fort. The view on each stamp shows one of the dominant characteristics of each fort. Jean Morin of Montreal was responsible for the design and development of the stamp booklet format and cover.
Designed by Rolf P. Harder.
