I'm Canadian and my father always tipped the mailman in cash.

I have no idea what the rules are for Federal employees, but assume that are the same for the Ontario Provincial Government employees, as I was one. No gifts can be accepted, cash or otherwise.

Annually, I tip the mailperson, the counter clerk and the Postmaster (all are females) in cash as I receive great service from all of them. They've never refused my gift. They know my name, my collecting interest (Canadian mint) and on request always hand stamp my outgoing mail to family and other collectors. I'm also given all of the retiring Canada Post stamp and other philatelic posters when the new ones come out.

I also tip my barber (although she refers to herself as my stylist).

My mail carrier has always done an excellent job. I don't "tip" her. *wink, wink* I send her an addressed Christmas card with the proper postage attached. It contains a "gift" to a friend. She picks it up in the mailbox.
My thank you card comes the same way.

Experienced stamps need a home too. I'd rather have an example that is imperfect than no example.
I collect for enjoyment, not investment.

Seems like I get a new mail carrier every other week.
My route appears to be a training route.
