|The purpose of this exhibit is to show the many different re-entries with sketches of the re-entries on Canadian stamps printed from engraved plates. Many of the re-entries were not listed in Canadian literature until the 1990s. By 2002 most had been written up in the BNAPS Re-entry Study Group Newsletter. The 6¢ Small Queen stamp known as the “5¢ on 6¢” was always thought to come only from position 25. This exhibitor sent his copy of that position to the Editor of the study group as he noticed it looked slightly different. It was published in the newsletter and other collectors noticed differences, resulting in six positions being identified. The stamps are arranged chronologically between 1852 and 1953. The exhibit features the only known precancel on the 5¢ on 6¢ Small Queen, two of the ten known Plate 5 State 1 map stamps, and several misplaced entries. All the known re-entries on the 1898 map stamp are included.
Harry Voss was a lifetime resident of Saskatoon, working for National Cash Register for 46 years before his retirement in 1989. An avid collector of Canadian stamps from the mid-1950s, Harry always had an interest in varieties. Around 1970 he developed a keen interest in the field of Canadian Re-entries. A member in good standing of BNAPS, RPSC and APS, he also belonged to several BNAPS study groups. Harry was pleased to have helped create the Saskatoon Stamp Club. As well as filling many positions in the club including President, Harry managed the RPSC circuit books for 23 years. This proved to be rewarding in many ways. With his sharp eyes he found many re-entry treasures in these books, including a “5¢ on 6¢” major re-entry. Harry spent many hours at stamp shows, poring over dealers’ stocks in search of those elusive re-entries. He was always very willing to share his knowledge, whether with a collector or a dealer. For this exhibit Harry examined several hundred thousand stamps with a ten-power glass.
