    Afternoon fellow exchangers
    Just back from the auction , after a 7am start, and the eyes are very tired, so off to get some shut eye in a while. Before I do, just thought I would share these few stamps with you that have intrigued me on the way home. I can not find them in Gibbons or Scotts ( though that's not surprising given how tired I am )
    Anyway, can anyone throw some light, and if possible please tell me they are worth a fortune ~ so I can replenish the funds before the wife finds out how much I have spent ! _ If she does, you are all welcome to my funeral

    This happens sometimes David. Try pressing on other options and loading the message and images from there. If it does not work, then go back to the original method and voila, it suddenly works.

    Do what I do B.B., Use an offsite photo storage and editing website like Photobucket or snapfish. I can just upload my scans and then all I have to deal with is copying and pasting an [IMG.] link. It's real easy PLUS I can actually find the darn things when I need them! Just a thought friend!

    Ok Try this !

    Now what I was about to say, is this something that was issued to every school kid at the end of the war ?

    I have never seen one before ( albeit not really philatelic ) but would have expected to have seen one given that they would have been fairly common
    The reverse has a series of war dates on - I will scan and add if anyone is interested

    These are listed in the Van Dam Canadian Revenue Stamp Catalogue. Unfortunately the best stamp (the top one) has a catalog value of $1.00, the rest are mostly 25 cents each. If you'd like a scan of the pages, email me directly (info at jacestamps.com).

    Should be in your mailbox, about 4mb so it might take a minute to download.

    Thanks Greg, truly appreciated.
    I note that your document states there are many forgeries of these stamps - is there an easy way to tell them apart please ? I would normally become suspicious due to cleanliness, however, this albumn appears to have been abandoned in mid to late 40's so most of the stamps are in excellent condition ( one of the reasons I bought it )

    The fakes really only apply to the overprints and pre-cancels. (as they tend to be worth more). Yours all look good.
