A report that Canada would issue a new $1 regular postage stamp was featured on page 1 of the June 3, 1963, Linn's. The $1 rose carmine Export Crate and Mercator Map stamp (Scott 411) was issued June 14, 1963.
In his editorial, Linn's founder George W. Linn wrote about the differences between collecting and investing in stamps.
"I have had a great many letters...from people who insist that the best way to promote our hobby of stamp collecting is to collect for the fun or pleasure or enjoyment of the hobby and not with any idea of making a profit from spending money on stamps," Linn wrote.
Stamp dealer A. Coleman of New York City advertised mint examples of Monaco Scott 159, the 1938 10-franc magenta Prince Louis II souvenir sheet, for $2.10.
The mint souvenir sheet today catalogs for $175.
