Newfoundland-1919-3 Cent (Brown)-Trail of the Caribou-Postage Stamp-Illustrated

Shown below is the 1919 3 Cent issue of the Newfoundland stamp. The stamp bears the legend "Trail of the Caribou" with "Gueudecourt" below the legend. The stamps with values from 1 Cent to 36 Cents were issued to commemorate the the Newfoundland Contingent of soldiers who fought in the First World War. Each issue had the name of a battle in which the contingent fought during the war. There are two known shades of the 3 Cent issue a brown as shown here and a red-brown. The red-brown shade is considered of slightly higher value.
