* 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.
Canada Post is very proud to be a part of CAPEX 87. Canada's third International Philatelic Exhibition. The Exhibition, which takes place from 13 to 21 June 1987 at the Metropolitan Toronto Convention Centre, will boast exciting stamp displays of some 3,200 competitive frames in a wide variety of classes. Each entry in a competitive class must have already demonstrated its excellence... for example, by winning a medal at a previous National Stamp Exhibition. Visitors to CAPEX 87 will also enjoy the distinctive Court of Honour and the fascinating official displays from postal museums around the world, including Canada. Over 140 stamps dealers, more than 90 foreign Postal Administration as well as postage stamp designers, engravers and printers will also take part. CAPEX 87 promises to be a philatelic exhibition of the highest calibre, the like of which will not be seen again in North America for many years. These three stamps continue the Heritage Post Office theme first presented with the 16 February issue depicting Toronto's First Post Office. These designs portray the post offices of Battleford, Saskatchewan, Nelson-Miramichi, New-Brunswick, and Saint-Ours, Quebec. The Battleford post office opened in 1913 while the Nelson-Miramichi post office opened in 1926. Both are standardized architectural designs that appear with a few variations in many communities across the country. The Saint-Ours post office opened in 1940 and is an example of a building specially adapted to the heritage character of its community. The stamp designer, John Mardon of Toronto, has presented the Heritage Post Offices as a passerby would see them. The drawing of the surrounding community, reproduced by steel engraving, has each post office highlighted in colour.
Designed by John Mardon.
