Canada: 10c design amended?
« on: November 09, 2017, 04:03:32 PM »


Canada, 10c, 1954.



The Canadian 10c design as we know it, of the schooner Bluenose, was first issued in 1937. Looking at some newer issues (see below), it looks as though the design has been "improved". Do you agree? And if so, when did the first such amended version appear? Have any other of the original standard designs been noticeably updated in similar fashion.

If I remember correctly, 1969 was the first year the Bluenose ship was slightly reduced in size.
