INTRODUCTION TO THE ADMIRAL ISSUE
The topics covered here are designed to show the material available to
the collector and to help in the interpretation of this material. I will
make no effort to cover the issue in the depth or detail done by Marler.
Any serious collector of the Admiral issue should have a copy of the
book "The ADMIRAL ISSUE of CANADA" by George C. Marler. This book
is the 'bible' for any student of the Admirals and I will refer to it
Most of the images have been abreviated to better fit on a monitor.
By that I mean only parts of a strip of 10 or block of 20 are shown in
order to get a larger image on your computer screen. In particular, the
Die proofs have been reduced to show only the stamp and the Die
number and imprint unless it has writing from the Post Office. I am aware
that many people think that the size of the cardstock that the proof is
mounted on has importance. Unfortunately I can't imagine what that value is.
