Hello,
I found this Canadian domestogramme in my collection



I am wondering if anyone has a Canadian Postal Stationary catalogue that can provide information (date, value, etc) on this item.

THanks in advance for any assistance.

Hi. I believe these are listed in the Unitrade with the UD prefix. There are six different ones in this series

It's Webb's 8th Edition (2019) #LS12 Ontario with the incorrect spelling of "Poste". The corrected version "Postes" is #A24.
Value is $2.50, issued 1973.
There are 24 domestogrammes in this series. #LS3-14 with incorrect spellings of "Poste" and "North West Territories, and #LS15-26 corrected in 1974.
There are 24 similar 15 aerogrammes with the same problems and solutions.
These were not affected by Webb's numbering changes..

The domestogrammes were issued as a set of 12 (showing the flower of each province and the Northwest Territories) in 1973. They were sold as a packaged of six. In 1974 they were re-issued to correct the "Postage/Poste" error below the stamp changing it to the correct "Postage/Postes". Webb's value for any of either issue is $2.50 unused. Used, any of the first issue is valued at $25.00 and $30.00 for the 1974 issue. They were never popular with the public.

You should be able to buy mint sets of 6 on ebay for less than $6 per set. As noted above from the Webb prices genuine commercially used ones are much harder to find. Philatelic used are easier.

Thanks everyone for the feedback. I do have the 2019 Unitrade catalogue but was unable to find my item until its location was pointed out to me. I guess I was expecting more images since it is a 'specialized' catalogue.
