    Hello, forum people! Can you tell me if this stamp is valuable?

    Hi there,

    While it’s nearly impossible to offer an exact estimation based on a digital image, I can tell you it’s from the 1897-98 Queen Victoria ‘Maple Leaf’ issue—specifically Scott #66. The regular issue is listed in the Unitrade Specialized Catalogue of Canadian Stamps as $6-$12 used and $2-$20 mint (plus 200% for a never-hinged example).

    Is this image the actual example in your collection?

    Happy collecting!

    Thank you for your help. According to this site, it is not very valuable… https://findyourstampsvalue.com/stamp/ub6ytQYHde Just the Internet is a very wide range of prices. Probably really depends on the quality – the safety of the stamp itself.

    Pleasure’s all mine; thanks for reaching out!

    Quality is always a major indicator of value—nice, fresh material will always be worth more–but of course, rarity is important, too.
