I don't collect normally collect revenues, but these were part of a larger group. I am looking for catalog numbers (Van Dam) for my records.
Thanks

JC:

Van Dam does not list tobacco revenues.

The last catalogue for Canadian tobacco revenues was printed in 1976. There is currently no catalogue for these items.

Generally they sell for about $1.

Cheers!

I don't think he will publish it in print. The author made it freely available, and I don't think he wants anyone printing it and charging for it.

It's been 5 years now, but I seem to recall that I printed a couple of copies for Erling on my colour Laser printer when it first became available.

Contact Erling via his website for any specifics.

re: Tobacco Revenue

Thanks for the link Happy
I was able to identify the stamps, I think. The 9 cent doesn't have the word cigarettes across the numeral, but neither does the 3 cent pictured. I came up with RC377 - 8cent, RC379 - 9cent, RC386 - 20cent, RC817 - 25cent.

A sheet from my 2012 VANPEX exhibit. The exhibit won a vermeil medal, my first and probably my last:

Corvettes were developed by the British after the beginning of the Second World War to counter the threat of German U-boats to Allied ships that were transporting vital goods in the Atlantic . They were small, highly maneuverable, reasonably fast, and could roll as much as 80 degrees in heavy seas.

This photograph, of HMCS Collingwood, was loaned to me by the owner of a gardening company here in Vancouver. His grandfather, who was assigned to corvettes during the war, took the photograph. Collingwood was the first corvette to be built in Canada:

The 20-cent value of Canada's War Issue (1942) pictures a corvette, HMCS La Malbaie under construction at Sorel, Quebec. The Prince Rupert, BC CDS cancellation on the stamp at the right is a bonus: two corvettes were built in the shipyard at Prince Rupert during the war.

re: Tobacco Revenue

"Flower" class Corvettes wre based on the design of Whale-Catcher ships and were cheap to build, and perhaps more importantly, could be built by small shipbuilders who did not have the facilities or expertise to build destroyers. They were also very suitable for command by ex-Merchant Navy reserve officers.

Although fast enough to keep up with convoys as escorts, they were not as fast or manouevarable ( they only had as far as I know a single propellor) as Destroyers and so were not really suitable as submarine hunters.

Later in the war construction was superseded by a new class of ship, (the now ubiquitous)frigate, a sort of scaled down destroyer, with the abilities of the full sized thing. Interesti8ngly the term"frigate" in the Royal Navy had not been used for many years and in fact harked bach to the pocket-sized scouting warship of Napoleonic times.

For U.S. readers some "Flower" class corvettes went on "reverse lend-lease" to the U.S.Navy for Arctic patrol duties where no doubt their robust construction was well appreciated.
