Newfoundland[edit | edit source]

  • The first meter appears to have been used in 1928 or possibly 1929.
  • All franks are inscribed “NEWFOUNDLAND”.
  • Newfoundland united with Canada in 1949. For issues after 1948 see CANADA.

NOTE: Catalog values, especially for Types 1, 3, 4 and 5, are for examples with readable meter numbers and frame lines. Indistinct impressions are common and worth far less than the stated catalog values which are for clear impressions on cover.
