Canada Goose Stamps

West River Unit Canada Goose Stamps

West River Unit Canada goose stamps were first issued in 1979. The majority were rubber stamped in blue or purple ink with the name of the county in which they were valid. It is not presently known whether unoverprinted stamps were regularly issued. Ed Nielson recalls that they were not. Also, the 1979 stamps rubber stamped "PERKINS COUNTY" may not have been regularly issued. At least one pane of 1980 stamps rubber stamped "JACKSON COUNTY" was printed without serial numbers in error.

The stamps were printed in panes of five (1x5) with a tab at the top. The panes were perforated 11 3/4 between the stamps and between the stamps and the tab. The stamps have dry gum. West River Goose stamps were superseded by Prairie Canada Geese Stamps in 1981. For images of all stamps in this series see 1974 - 1986 South Dakota Goose Stamps.
