Street Scenes (1978-82)
Updated Jan 5/02


 see also, Study Tips #4 article (50c Street Scene)


Canadian street scenes debuted July 6, 1978 with the release of 3 values. A 60c value followed in 1982.

The 50c and 60c values are tagged; the 75c and 80c are not.

The 3 initial values (50c, 75, 80c) were printed by the British American Bank Note Company. The Canadian Bank Note printed the 60c value and a second printing of the 50c value (noticeable differences exist).

BABN used photogravure; CBN uses lithography. These two printing methods produced different results on the 50c value. Top


  Photogravure Lithography
  13 1/3
50c Prairie Town (Austin, MB) Jul 6/78 (pl 1) Dec 13/78 (pl 2)
Apr 6/81 (pl 3)
60c Ontario City (Toronto, ON)   May 11/82 (pl 1-2)
75c Eastern City (Montreal, QC)   Jul 6/78
80c Maritime City (St. John's, NF)   Jul 6/78

The date shown is the date of issue of that specific variety. A "blank" means the item does not exist. Top


The 50c value has the only major error of these 4 stamps: missing inscriptions (dubbed "Ghost Town"). This value has many other minor errors, including kiss print, albino kiss print, doubling of brown inscriptions. Top
