Canadian Precancels

A precanceled stamp, or precancel for short, is a postage stamp that has been cancelled before being affixed to mail. These old Canadian stamps were typically used by mass mailers, who could save the postal system time and effort by prearranging to use the precancels, and delivering the stamped mail ready for sorting.
