An Australian, must look up his history.

I could find no other information from my Gibbons catalogues.

"Jobless men in a soup kitchen"

By Fred Baumann

Issued late in 1932, Canada's George V Medallion definitives were used until mid-1935, a short span during the hardest years of the century for many Canadians.

I had cheap used examples of these stamps in my callow youth, but barely noticed them.

The bearded profiles lined up across my album page like jobless men at a soup kitchen, a brief queue between more elegant portraits of the graying, medal-bedecked king that preceded and followed them. You get a sense of the contrast in the three stamps shown below.

Equipped by my fellow collectors with half a century of insight, I now know the Medallions merit a more appreciative look.

These elements were first combined with the profile of George V created by Australian sculptor Mackennal on a 3 red letter-rate stamp (Scott 192), one of three commemoratives released July 12, 1932, to herald the Imperial Economic Conference in Ottawa.

Interesting that the designer was Australian and that the printing press used was a U.S. Stickney rotary press by a Canadian company, the British American Bank Note Company.

I cannot see anything in Unitrade about who the engraver was. But if you have an interest in this issue. Here is the listed variety for the 3c. Unitrade 192i, Broken E in postage. On an Imperial bank cover, used a couple of weeks after issue.
