Bluenoser

Check out the "Bluenose," not only a legendary schooner but also subject of perhaps the most famous of classic Canadian postage stamps.

"In 1928-1929, the Dominion of Canada issued an impressive set of postage stamps. The 50-cent value is commonly known as the "Bluenose" (Scott # 158), and has been referred to as the most beautiful stamp in the world." (Ann Mette Heindorff)

Date of issuance, January 8th, 1929. Picture engraved by Harold Osborn; designed by Herman Herbert Schwartz; based on photographs by Wallace R. MacAskill.
