Ted Nixon’s Canada 1870-1897 Small Queen Issue, the 64th volume in the BNAPS Exhibit Series, is the first to illustrate the wide variety of Small Queen material, probably the most collected area of 19th Century Canadian philately. The exhibit was developed in the 1980s and 1990s with displays at national shows in Canada and several international shows, culminating in a gold medal at PHILEXFRANCE, Paris in 1999. It received Gold and the Reserve Grand Award at ROYAL-2001-ROYALE in Montreal, Large Gold and Grand Award Traditional at the Interamerican Exhibition in Bogota, Colombia in 2007. At the BNAPEX 2009 SEAWAYPEX convention in Kingston, Ontario the exhibit received the BNAPEX Novice and Horace Harrison Grand Awards. This was followed by Gold at the Festival Internazionale della Filatelia, Rome, Italy in 2009 and Gold at ORAPEX 2011 in Ottawa. Ted then decided that it was time for the material to be shared with other collectors in the form of this volume in the BNAPS Exhibit Series. The collection was auctioned in March 2012 by Eastern Auctions Ltd.
