The Canadian Klussendorf cancels used to be pretty popular in the 1980s. Not sure about the interest today. I have a fair collection of these but still lack a decent number, including many of the more modern ones and of the slogans. I'd also love to add to my inverts. I have a good number of extras. Trade?

Also, anyone aware of a valuation guide for these canels?

Fascinating. There are scant few examples of German-style cancels being used in the US.

I just cut up some of those 2 weeks ago to get them ready for soaking. Don't remember if German or Canadian though. I'll have to see if I still have some more. Sad

re: Discussion of Canadian Klussendorfs

I have a lot of duplicates because I bought the bulk of Alan Steinhart's and Robert Meek's Klussendorf collections years ago.

I got started on Klussendorfs in the late 1980s due to Alan and have self-published a book on them called "The Canadian Klussendorf Cancellations".

Unfortunately I am working in Myanmar at present so can't send you any until I get back. I have a number of slogans, inverts, error dates, the defaced Quebec cancels and some modern towns for sale or trade. I even have one Klussendorf with an inverted date!

A couple of towns are going to be really difficult to find. I believe I own the only "Langley BC" but "Abbotsford BC" is rare and the "Sherbrooke PQ" slogan is very rare.

It is interesting there are no German-style cancels in the US because IPS has been making the town hubs for the Canadian Klussendorf machines since the early 1990s.
