BIOGRAPHY: Bruce Hay

Not much is known about the engraver Bruce Hay. Two Canadian stamps are attributed to him: the 1933 5c Royal William and the 1934 3c Cartier stamp. The Royal William stamp is interesting in that die proofs exist of his original engraving of the stamp, which featured a ship that turned out not to be the SS Royal William.

There is also a die essay of a design featuring a three-funnelled liner. Judging by the scroll frame, this is thought to have been an engraved essay for the 1918 Panama set, which was printed by the American bank Note Company.
