 Medium-value Artifacts
 BRC low-value Artifacts checklist

Background

A new series of definitives, featuring Artifacts, appeared in 1982. This type of design lasted just 5-6 years, resulting in 7 low-value and 9 medium-value designs.

The 7 basic low-value designs have produced 21 different varieties, due to perforation, paper, and tagging changes.

Four different paper manufacturers supplied paper for the low-value Artifact sheet stamps. Click here for a discussion of identifying modern-day Canadian postage stamp paper.

The 1c-5c values were all issued untagged. The 10c value was issued with 2-bar tagging and block tagging.

All of these stamps were issued in panes of 100. Top
