Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 8, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday July 8, 1971 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Stamp col led i up; By CHRISTINE PUHL Staff Writer Stamps are collect wl in many different ways and its all a mat- er of personal interest. Some rfiilatelists assemble postmarks and stamp cancellations, or the 'aricus ways new issues of stamps are sold, while others may go into the detail of ink and paper types or just the 'good old stamps" back through .Ire years. Stamps in Canada are either definitive stamps of the regular issue or commemoralive stamps for special themes. There are many interesting cle- ,ails involved with stamps. For nst3r.ce, according to one Leth- bridge collector, the orange six-cent stamp of the cm-rent confederation issue was changed .a black because the original orange triggered the automatic sorters. A FLEA AND A FLY IN A FLUE? No, just grasshoppers, caught with a net. Scott Kanashiro, 714, son of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Kanashiro, 2710 6th Ave. A N. says he lets them go after he watches them for awhile, but in the meantime he has a summer hobby.

Another stamp, issued in 1950 had a beaver skin being stretch- ed and in real proportions the beaver would have been larger than the Indian also pictured. A Canadian Beaver stamp is- sued in 1851 was designed by Santord Fleming who also in- vented the 24 time_belts which span the world, avery Cana- dian stamp since 1935 has a tiny date worked somewhere into the design which is the date the dye was msde, not when the stamp was issued. Cancellations on envelopes are also in demand. Many post office branches have been clos- ed and their postmarks no long- er exist. The first cancels were carved from cork by the post- master and if enough stamps from around that date can he obtained, one can see how the cork wore out, said a local col- lector. A post office near Thelma, moved each week to a differ- ent ranch house, creating a very unusual set of cancels. Post office cars in trains, stamped not only the date but the train number, destination and direction of travel. Stamp cancels include many kinds such as roller, circles, squared circles, slogans, mct- ered posl marks or special event c a n c e 11 a lions. Many stamp collectors save stamps only for the cancellations and one person in particular saves a cancel for everyday of each month back lo the early 1900s. Canada has issued the larg- est stamp and also the first Christmas stamp which was an accident, according to a Leth- bridge stamp collector.
