Item details

Special issue endangered species atlantic whitefish Michael Dumas stamp on envelope 15 pieces.
You will receive 15 envelopes---clean as shown, and with sealed rear flap (perhaps time/temperature sealed the gum or maybe they started out sealed).

The stamp is affixed to--not printed on the envelope, and it is stamped with the day of issue stamp (1980) by Canada Post. A blind stamp just below the illustration on the left side says "endangered species". The envelope measures 6" (15 cm.) by 3 1/2" (9 cm.)

On the rear is the following written by Canadian Wildlife artist Michael Dumas:
(a profile of a fish in blue) Atlantic Whitefish (Coregonus canadensis Scott)

The endangered Atlantic Whitefish, found in southern Nova Scotia, and nowhere else in the world, presented many problems to be overcome before the first brushstroke could be applied. I found the available reference to be disappointingly meagre, so with the rough sketches I had compiled I set out for the Huntsman Marine Laboratory in St. Andrews, N.B. I was welcomed by Dr. Beverley Scott, the man who discovered the Atlantic Whitefish as a separate and distinct species. Together we went over my preliminary work and with his knowledgable guidance my pencil recorded the distinguishable features of Coregonus canadesis Scott. In the completed painting all of the gathered information is utilized to set the Atlantic Whitefish at home in a cool, clear, Nova Scotia river.
