Canada Unused Collection. To 1997 in two Scott albums, a few early unused or used stamps, really starts in 1897, where the collector tried to obtain only Mint Never-Hinged stamps, and he substantially succeeded, as there are only a handful of stamps from this period that may be faintly hinged or regummed, the Jubilee series goes to the 50c, and it is virtually complete from there, including Back-of-Book, also a nice group of Newfoundland from 1897 on collected in the same way, except Nos. 87-97 and 104-114 are hinged, Fine-Very Fine, an ideal basis on which to expand a Mint Never-Hinged collection of Canada and Provinces, Scott value counting only 1897 and later issues should be well in excess of $30,000.00
