Volume 1 - Pre Confederation Canada and Provinces Including Newfoundland to 1949
Volume 2 - Canada From 1868 to 1899
This fantastic volume includes a full and mostly VFNH set of Jubilees as well as VFNH Maple Leaves, Numerals and Map Stamps
Volume 3 - Canada From 1903 to 1949
Another amazing volume that has the best group of perf OHMS stamps I have ever seen.
Volume 4 - 1946 Peace Issue - 1962 Trans Canada Highway
Although most of the material in this volume is fairly standard, there is a nice showing of the Postes-Postage issue, and there is a lovely 4c Wilding fold-over error, and some ink spillage plate blocks.
Volume 5 - 1963 to 1967, Plus the Famed 1959 Seaway Invert
This volume contains an excellent showing of Cameo and Centennial issue paper varieties, and the highlight must be the Seaway invert that has a clear certificate.
Volume 6 - 1967 to 1976
This volume contains several prominent errors, the best being the 1969 Christmas with missing black, and the Kingston Military College Double Print. The regular issues provide a nice cross section of the issues, without containing every single variety, so there is plenty more that you could do with this period.
Volume 7 - 1977-1987
This volume is relatively straightforward, but does include several better errors from the Floral issue and the Artifacts issue.
Volumes 8 through 11 - 1988 to Date
I don't show the entire four volumes here as they are largely complete and are simply a very straightforward range of the issues from these years. However, nestled in amongst this material are many errors and other goodies, including nearly all of the signed Hockey Card stamps from the 2000's.
