Canada #176

50 Cent Grand Pre / Evangeline of 1930

Lightly Hinged or Never Hinged

 

When the British took control of Nova Scotia from the French, they expelled many of the residents, who were know as the Acadians. Many of these people did not want to leave their homes, and were killed in battles with the British. One woman, Evangeline, whose statue you see here, became a symbol of the plight of the Acadians (as well as the subject of a famous poem).

For those of you living south of the border here in the U.S., you may find it of interest that many of these people moved from Nova Scotia to the "cajun country" of Louisiana, where their decendants live (and maintain their French language) up to today.

The stamp shown, which is very lightly hinged, was chosen from a large group best on its' beautiful centering. The 2000 Scott price for a lightly hinged stamp is $150.00. Our asking price for this stamp is just $90.00.

You will also receive an automatic discount of at least 10%, which will reduce the price to at least $81.00. Your personal discount may be greater (and your price lower.) Just click on the discount button below for details of our discount program.

Don't like hinges?? -- well here's a third copy. This one (below) is mint never hinged. Scott prices this at $300.00 -- but we ask just $175.00 less a minimum discount of 15% (which reduces your net price to $148.75)

To place an order, send no money now, payment is due only upon receipt of the stamp. Be sure to specify whether you are ordering the $175.00, or the $90.00 stamp.
