Some of the Best Canadian Stamps of 2003

Every year as we look back over our reports of the auctions that have taken place, we are amazed at the quality of some of the Canadian stamps that have been offered by our auction houses. It would be nice to dream that the pick of the lot was sitting on the desk in front of us, waiting to be picked up and inspected. We have decided to make this dream come true for our viewers by selecting some of the choicest items and making them instantly available to you, right on your desktop. Here they are:
