* 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.
Following last year's highly popular souvenir sheet featuring historic Canadian cars, in 1994, Canada Post Corporation presents Public Service Vehicles. These specialty streetcars, wagons, trucks and buses provided public transportation, and assisted in the maintenance of roads and in the provision of essential services. As cities grew in size, police patrolling on foot, horseback or horse-drawn wagon could not maintain a city-wide presence nor respond quickly to emergency calls. As a result, police purchased cars, motorcycles, ambulances and patrol wagons. Commonly known as paddy wagons, the 1925 Winnipeg patrol wagon was built in two parts. Its body was made locally by Lawrie Wagon and Carriage Co. and then set on an American-built Reo Speed Wagon chassis. Reo trucks were noted for excellent engines and reliability with the rated speed of the 1½ ton model reaching 30 miles per hour.
Designed by Joseph Gault. Designed by Tiit Telmet.
