Canada. In 1867 the Dominion of Canada was formed by Canada, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. The other provinces joined later. During 1868, Canada started using stamps now known as the “Large Queens” of which you will see four examples below. There are many shades and different thickness of paper in this issue, partly caused by the changes in printing house from Ottawa to Montreal. Only three years later, the “Small Queen” stamps began to appear.
