Flag - Self-Adhesive (1989-93)
Updated Jan 5/02

 BRC Flag checklist


Background

Canada's first self-adhesive stamp, featuring the Canadian Flag, appeared in the middle of 1989. Five different values appeared in the ensuing 4 years.

All of the stamps came in booklets of 12, with the booklet selling for more than the actual face value.

All of these stamps are relatively more difficult to find in used condition (particularly with a nice circular date stamp cancel) than their contemporary "gummed" values. This is due in part to a couple of reasons: the premium required to buy a stamp, and all of the booklets were released sometime after the postal rates had been increased (typically, new definitives are released on, or just before, a rate increase).
