2¢ & 1¢ War Tax carmine - 1916 Mint Issue

Canada, along with other members of the British Commonwealth, issued War Tax stamps whose use was mandatory on mail to help defray the enormous costs of World War I. Although common in used condition, they are hard to find in mint condition. Unlike most war tax stamps, these stamps paid the regular postage rate and included a 1¢ tax surcharge. Canada #MR3
