UPDATED TO show that I now need cannabis stamps from only three Canadian jurisdictions and to indicate extras that I have available for trade

I have excellent condition Ontario, British Columbia, Manitoba and Nova Scotia cannabis stamps for only a one-for-one trade for similar stamps from the Yukon, Nunavit and the Northwest Territories.

I must inquire. How did you seperate the stamp from the packaging? I now have two from PEI only, but still attached to cardboard packaging. I cut it so it lays flat with the packaging attached so it forms the backing and a border. I still do not have N.S. yet even though I live here.

Similar to stamps vs postal history ... seems like these would be more collectible and valuable if left on as large a piece of the original packaging as possible. Thoughts?

John, I have no idea what the packages look like that these stamps were affixed to as I do not purchase it myself. Have not even gone into an outlet to view any. It may be more difficult to mount on page or easily in an album.

This image "borrowed" from eBay shows a small paperboard box which seems easily flattenable. In my opinion, removing the stamp from the package loses most of the character and collectibility of the item.



That said, I have collected quite a number of large and/or 3-D postal and fiscal items believing that not everything has to fit artificially in the confines of an album. Anyway, just something to consider.

No1philatelist - will you trade one PEI for one Ontario ? (your choice from the eleven I've shown)

A relative purchases medical cannabis and mailed the stamps to me last week . I don't know if the packaging has changed, but removing from the original bottles resulted in many destroyed stamps.

Try putting this container into your album.

Pretty much all the ones I have (Ontario only sorry) have come on cardboard boxes similar to what is pictured above. I cut them out myself, leaving just a margin of the paper backing.

Blackjag, was busy last couple days. Of course I will. Here is my extra, no damage, thinning or creasing. Just dm me and we will get particulars for mailing.

UPDATE to my first listing of Ontario cannabis stamps for trade.

Please note that I have recently traded my Ontario QSE881538 (middle of the three stamps in the bottom row shown in the first posting above) for a Prince Edward Island cannabis stamp.

I've just - ahem - acquired three Ontario cannabis stamps. All were on foil packaging, so were easy to remove...carefully of course. The issue now is the glue on the back. What d'you think BlackJag. Just stick them on some acid free paper? (no pun intended regarding the 'acid')

Jamessw. Acid free ! Nice one.

I wondered if it would look okay to stick it directly in a mount cut to leave a nice even border around it. That way it has the black background and can be mounted or stored in an album.

Jamessw I have several Ontario cannabis revenues myself. I was able to remove most of mine without problem. For mounting, if the back is still sticky, I use the left over backing paper from self adhesive address labels to put the stamps on and cut to size. Same technique is used for all self adhesive stamps. To remove difficult ones I would try Pure Citrus (I use this for U.S.A. and other modern issues) or some other product. Once removed and glue scraped off, if still a bit tacky, I dust lightly with 'real' talcum powder. I have a couple of extra Ontario stamps for trade for other provinces. It would be fun to have one from each province.

I am unsure that talcum powder is safe long-term. Talc contains magnesium and silica and at first glance this seems fairly benign.

But I note that the a number of paper conservation websites call out to not use Talcum Powder on paper. (For example Penn State Libraries "Preservation Do's and Don'ts").

Does anyone know of any data or studies which show that talc is archival or safe long term?

51studebakernot sure about studies, but I did say 'real' talcum powder; some forms of 'talcum powder' contain corn starch and other ingredients
