Port Hood Postmarks Exhibit

The exhibit was shown at Novapex 2010 in Halifax, where it was awarded a Regional Gold Medal. A revised version of the exhibit was awarded a National Vermeil at Novapex 2012.

Since that time, the exhibit has been upgraded with the addition of a 1841 Double Broken Circle Paid Mark struck in red, two extremely rare Numeral Rate Marks from the mid-1800’s, and the modern Postage Label marks. This version, illustrated below, was shown at Novapex in 2012 where it won a Vermeil.

Below is a copy of a new printed Postage Label from 2013. Note the chevrons to the right side of the label, which is the main difference from the postage labels shown in the exhibit.

Below is a copy of a new Port Hood postmark that has been introduced since I revised my exhibit. I am not sure when it was introduced, but it is from 2015.
