Not sure if I have heard that term 'preperfs' in reference to 'perfinned' revenues before? A new one to me - again :)

Bujutsu,
It's not just revenues, but any stamp that it is both a precancel and a perfin.

HTH,

I tend to use a good stock book rather than a preprinted album for small topics as precancels and perfins. Allows for easy expansion and revision and doesn't leave you with any questions about mounts, hinges etc. It's an idea.

Rod: just a guess on my part but your customs stamp with its DM perfin may be Denison Mines, which was a large uranium mining outfit based in Elliot Lake, Ontario, until the ore ran out. They almost disappeared during the clean-up years but have been slowly resurrecting themselves again through both uranium and potash.

Thanks cynical,
i'll keep that as an option,
but I was told by a Canadian, that it was Dennison
the makers of stamp hinges.

Rod,

I thought Dennison Mfg. Co. was located in Framingham, Mass. If so, why would they precancel Canadian stamps?

have never seen an album for Canadian precancels. Does anyone know of one?
I was contemplating making one otherwise. Has anyone else done this?
I know that there is a considerable amount of resources I can use from online to do this, but if someone else has already done so..

a 126 page album was published by Robert A. Lee.
Titled "Canadian/Precancel/Album" In 1993.
Punched Three Ring.
If anyone would like these pages I Have them for sale.
This is clean and unused.
$5.00 Plus postage, ( I will weigh it if requested)
Scans also available

chasa and djd,

Thanks for clarifying Dennison's Canada connection -- and for restoring my faith in Rod's encyclopedic knowledge!

Here is a scan from the 4th Edition of 'Canadian Stamps with Perforated Initials', by J.C. Johnson & G. Tomasson.



The perfin previously shown is assigned 'D6', and issued by the Canadian (Montreal) office of 'Dennison Manufacturing Co.' It has a rarity factor of 'G' which means that 1001-3000 are known. The more rare 'DM/Co' perfin is 'D5' which is an 'A' (1-3 known) and issued by their USA Office in Boston, MA.

Tomiseksj (Steve) asked earlier: "I thought Dennison Mfg. Co. was located in Framingham, Mass. If so, why would they precancel Canadian stamps?

Personnel based in the USA Office would travel up to Canada on various business trips, and prior to their departure they would be provided Canadian stamps to use for business purposes. The USA Office would use their Perfin machine on these stamps to minimize theft and misuse.

This thread originated as 'Precancels' which was the reason for my initial interest, and then it took a diversion into Perfins.....

Now back to Precancels. I could not find any Album pages for Canadian Precancels so I used MS Word to create my own. It now encompasses three albums totaling about 400 pages!

Here is one of the pages.
