OHMS stands for On His Majesty Service. From Unitrade catalog

Quote:

" In 1949, perforation of Canada Stamps for official Government use was discontinued and the P.O. (Post Office) began overprinting "O.H.M.S." on stamps supplied to government offices. "O.H.M.S." was used for only one year, replaced by the single letter "G" in 1950. In 1963, Government offices stopped using "official stamps"."

re: Canadian stamp

The first stamp with the plane is an Airmail stamp.

Airmail stamps were used to pay the (higher) rate of postage for items sent via airmail from 1928 onwards; the last one was issued about 1947 after which airmail became an ordinary means of delivery and ordinary postage stamps were used.

re: Canadian stamp

Thankyou to both Studbaker and also the response I received about these stamps from the other person as it has been a big help. Could someone just tell me why they used numbers for the stamps and not the name of the city. I'm guessing that the stamp with the numbers hasn't been used??. Cloudy here so it is good to go through stamps and ask questions

The "Precancel Codes" are the MOONs... Money Order Office Numbers for the city.

re: Canadian stamp

David,
Is that the entire list ?
I should be an easy topic to collect.
Or are there some "rara avis."
