    Hi Susan,

    No word yet on smaller shows in late summer or fall. All national-level exhibitions have been cancelled (including Canpex, which wasn’t being held until late October). We’ll keep you posted.

    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.

    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!

    Everyone, thank you for your input, and best of luck with your hobby.

    For the record, I’ve been involved since February 2015, when I joined CSN as a reporter. I fancy postal history and collect 19th- and 20th-century covers, mostly.

    It depends on the material being sold (its rarity, condition, provenance, etc.) and your reason for selling it (are you either a collector or non-collector trying to get rid of a collection, or are you a dealer?).

    I recommend contacting the Toronto Postcard Club, Canada’s largest deltiology club, for more information.

    Also, there’s an Old Book and Paper Show in Toronto this Sunday, and someone there might have more information.

    Good luck!
