Canada Post Olympex 2008 Cancellations
Canada Post, in the October-December 2008 issue of their quarterly catalog, Details, announced the availability by mailorder of the two special show cancellations used at their booth at Olympex, Olympic Expo Beijing 2008.
Orders for the cancellations will be accepted until February 28, 2009 through Canada Post's National Philatelic Centre. A fee of 20¢ per cover will be charged for affixing and cancelling (plus the cost of the stamp) and a fee of 15¢ will be charged for cancelling only.
If you affix your own stamps, make sure that the issue date of the stamp precedes the date of the cancellation. Consider requesting the 52¢ Canada Olympic stamp issued July 18, 2008 (also available in booklets of 10 for $5.20).
All covers are returned in a Canada Post mailer. You may pay for your covers and stamps with either Visa or Mastercard. Please include your full name, address, card number and expiration date, and a daytime phone number in case there is a question about your order.
