King George VI - Canada Collection Page Scans

The Canada King George VI era set of stamps were printed from 1937 until about 1951. In addition to the basic sets, there are some color variations as well as the coil and booklet panes. You might also find the airmail and special delivery issues interesting. Finally there are official issues that can be challenging to find - especially the five hole punched OHMS issues. (Count the holes in the letters. There are either four or five holes.)

The pages are from my collection, and are identified by the Commonwealth, Gibbons, and Scott numbers in that order. I did not find any collectable color shades, probably because most sets were in use for only a couple of years.

The page images were scanned in a larger size and at a higher resolution so you can more easily see the details used in viewing them. Feel free to select the page and let it download to your screen and save it to your hard drive for viewing. If you are using a PC, selecting the page will typically open it in Microsoft Photo Viewer (or whatever you are using as your default). From there you can enlarge the size for more close-up viewing. If you are using a phone - go find a PC or a Mac. The images are 1200 pixels wide and you will go mad trying to view them on your phone.

Please be patient if it takes a few minutes for each page to load.
