Canadian Imprint Blocks

Up to the end of the 1950s stamp sheets were printed in multiples of 200, 400 and 600 with the printers name, the plate number and sometimes a description of the issue in each corner of the sheet. Additionally the printers' order number was printed in one corner. These sheets were guillotined into sheets of 100 for post office use. It is possible therefore for most issues to find four different positional pieces for each plate or combination of plates used. For information on the plates available for some of the issues, click on this link.
