Newfoundland and Labrador is a Canadian province located on the east coast of North America. It consists of Labrador, which is situated on the mainland of the continent and the island of Newfoundland. Newfoundland became a British colony in 1583 when it was annexed by Sir Humphrey Gilbert. It achieved self-governing status as a Dominion in 1907.   In 1927, the British government ruled on a dispute between Quebec and Newfoundland, deciding Labrador would be considered part of the Dominion of Newfoundland. In 1933, because of high debt from World War I and the construction of a railway across the island, the Newfoundland legislature voted itself out of existence. A commission of seven members appointed by the British government ran the colony with no elected representation for 15 years. On April 1, 1949, Newfoundland joined Canada following two referenda on the colony's future.

During part of its time as a colony and Dominion, between January 1, 1857 and June 24, 1947, about 300 stamps were issued by the Newfoundland Post Office. The stamps are widely acclaimed for the design and their presentation of the country's history and geography. Although there are some rarities, the majority of these issues are modestly priced and a fairly complete collection is possible for most collectors. Read more about its history here.

If you have Newfoundland stamps to sell contact me for a competitive offer.

I specialize in Newfoundland postage stamps for beginning to intermediate collectors, although there are often items of interest to those more advanced.  I carry both mint and used stamps and some postal history, so please ask if you're looking for that special item. 

I have an online store at eBay featuring the stamps of Newfoundland . I also welcome your Newfoundland stamp want lists and can provide an approval service. Examine the stamps in your own home, keep and pay for those that meet your needs and return the rest. Just email your name, address, phone number and any philatelic references. Let me help you build your Newfoundland stamp collection.

New Additions Coming!

We are beginning to stock stamps from Newfoundland's southern French neighbour, St. Pierre and Miquelon. Not always on the best of terms in the past, they are now sister islands in the Northwest Atlantic.
