Canada 1951 Stamp Centenary

In 1951, Canada Post issued a series of four stamps to honour the transfer of the administration of postal service from Great Britain to British North America in 1851. The three low denominations (4¢, 5¢ and 7¢) emphasized the development of communications by land, water, and air, a feature of Canadian history closely related to the development of postal service.

A 15-cent stamp contained a reproduction of the 1851 three pence beaver stamp designed by Sandford Fleming. It was the first 15-cent denomination since 1908, and was planned as an air mail stamp.

All Nations has aquired some of the 4¢ 5¢ and 15¢ stamps in blocks of 4, Canadian classics.

April, 1950, for the Canadian National Railways. The coaches are from a train in regular passenger service in 1951 on the Canadian Pacific Railway between Montreal and Vermont.
