I was out of town so I'm late getting back to this thread. WOW, jarnick, you have blown my mind on these cards! And given me some things to think about. Clearly, many of these cards were issued with the intent that the actual stamps be attached and cancelled. So in some ways they are much like Maximum cards. But they were nearly all issued to commemorate various philatelic events, so that would seem to qualify them as souvenir cards. It's a little amusing that some have cancellations over the stamp designs, although they are not valid stamps. Can you tell me whether there is anything on the reverse of any of the cards?

BTW, there is one -- Philex '83 -- which was previously given a catalog number since it was printed by a known security printer, Canadian Bank Note Co. It was issued with and without serial numbers (SO-30 and SO-31).

As I had hoped, there are indeed more of these Canada Post "national" cards. We've uncovered two more, from Canada '84 and Montreal National '88. What I don't know is whether these two were issued mint (I suspect the latter was). Does anyone have an answer?

Not an answer, but the 1934 French and Canadian Cartier stamps are to the 1984 issue as the crack in the sitting-room wall is to the Grand Canyon, as they say. Sic transit gloria philateli, or something.

Thanks Rod - What I'm specifically looking for here are cards issued by Canada Post, so no USPS cards or semi-officials like those SO cards you listed. Canada Post has complicated things by marketing their annual mint stamp sets as "souvenir cards." For our purposes, those "stuck-downs" don't qualify; these need to be cards issued for a specific event or exhibition.

I wonder if Canada Post itself would have any information about these cards. Does anyone know if they have a historian who I could contact?
