Just a question Could there be other stamps from other countries that are not listed in a book that are found

Like someone found a old stamp from England and this person lived in another country and it is not listed

Me I found this in my aunts stamps to me it dosen't look right with a pimple on his face but I'm not from America or Canada so perhaps they didn't know then I found this Just a question

re: New Comer Corner Canadian stamp

I can understand your curiosity about the design of the 3 cent red King George V Canadian stamp if you have not been able to access a catalogue that clearly shows the "normal" design. The Canadian Unitrade catalogue shows it in detail, and apart from the tiny line you mention beside the O in the left "Postes" I note nothing different from the normal design. The "pimple" is indeed the extension of the King's moustache, and not the "extended" variant found on some of the 2 cent copies of this design. The ornamentation below the word "CENT" also is perfectly normal for this design. In summary, the stamp you posted in the previous post along with questions about whether it is an error copy is Unitrade #167, which the catalogue indicates had a printing run of 492,000,000 copies. Catalogue value is minimal. It is, however, a rather old stamp and should fit nicely as your copy of this issue in your collection.

Regarding the broader question of your post, it would be presumptuous to state categorically that there never could be a variety uncovered that was not previously listed. That said, it would also be a find of infinitesimal probability that would warrant world news coverage. As you examine the stamps you have inherited I hope you find beauty and fascination with them, and as many members of StampoRama will attest, the opportunity to learn more about a stamp collection can offer you challenges for a lifetime.

Happy collecting!

re: New Comer Corner Canadian stamp

Thankyou for the information

I can't get hold of the Canadian stamp catalogue which is why I came onto here to find out.

Everyone has been most helpful even the man who put the images up on how the stamps are printed With me waiting for my daughter to help me and you all have been most patience.

My aunt would of got the stamps from the mail or a catalogue as everyone would of collected stamps back in the 30's and 40's and there was no shops back then doing it.

This stamp site is good and better then some others, very helpful as I'm not really into stamps but at least I can tell my aunt about it. Stamps especially old stamps can tell alot about the country's history.

One day I will be back You haven't heard from the last of me

Once again Thankyou

Au Contraire, mon ami !
In the thirties and forties there was a
stamp store in almost every town and village.
In larger cities every neighborhood,
and major cities such as New York clusters
of stamp sellers operated stores in some
central area. There was one building in lower
Manhattan, #116 Nassau Street, that held
over a dozen dealers in two room stamp offices
and easily ten or twenty more up and down the street.

I understand you may live in a rural area
but even still, I bet sixty or seventy
years ago there was one close enough to
visit on a Saturday morning. It was sometimes
called the "Hey Day of Philately".
The change has been the demise of what
we often refer to as "Brick and Mortar" stores
with all their fixed overhead expenses and the
growth of on-line dealers.

Suzanne,

I'll add that not all "labels" issued are from stamp-issuing entities. There are fake stamps, fake countries, and an entire world of Cinderellas that could include labels that look like stamps.

Most likely, given that you don't have a catalogue to consult, you just haven't found the image yet.

I should also add that some catalogues, Scott for instance, doesn't always list ALL stamps from a set, and you could have a stamp that is listed by not pictured
