I wish I hadn't seen these...

Ok, backtrack a bit. Was on eBay, and stumbled across an auction for a conversation stamp from Quebec. This stamp came with a small folder and was of an arctic fox. Of course, I had to get it (which I did), but then I ended up looking for some information on it, and stumbled across another site that is dedicated to Canadian stamps... but not of the postage sort. No, this is devoted to revenue stamps, hunting stamps, duck stamps... and conservation stamps. Seems that each province every year puts out a special stamp for which the proceeds go towards conservation efforts in the province. So looking over the site, I see three stamps... one from Alberta from 2004 with a cougar as the subject, and two from the Yukon Territory, the 2004 with a red fox and the 2005 with a trio of wolves.

Well, the stamps arrived today. Along with a catalog of other stamps... and now I'm whimpering as I'm seeing more pretty wildlife stamps with wolves and cougars and otters and bobcats and foxes and caribou and musk ox and...

You get the picture. Whatever budget I had planned for next paycheck just got seriously short circuited a bit.

That reminds me - I have a werewolf stamp they did waaay back, and have been meaning to send it to you for some time.

I know the one you're speaking of. It was part of a series of four stamps of Canadian mythology/folklore creatures. I've seen the other set as well, both on my eventually list...

Like the gold wolf coin that just came out...

All I have in stamps is the 1990 61 cent 'Timber Wolf' (Catalog 1175) which I got because I saw it in the post office while living in Montreal. Other than that I'm a coin purist. ;>

I have that stamp. In fact, I have the stamp, a plate block and a First Day Cover. Along with the other dozen or so stamps that make up that particular issue. *chuckle* Oh, I did get a silver coin from Mongolia with a holographic wolf on it recently.
