- 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.
A winding trail of mud, rocks and water-filled holes was all that linked most early Canadian settlements. Travellers often preferred to go by foot or horseback rather than risk being thrown from a bouncing wagon. Eventually, graders hauled by horses pushed or pulled a blade over the roads to cut off bumps and fill the holes, followed by a roller which compacted and smoothed the earth. Charles H. Waterous, founder of Waterous Engine Works, worked towards perfecting the steam road roller. Used by Canadian municipalities and leading road builders, the roller was a 12 ton monster that could compact almost any terrain. With its Waterous Steam Pressure Scarifier breaking the surface prior to grading, this industrial giant smoothed the roads in many Canadian provinces.
