Nova Scotia Stamps Nova Scotia issued its first stamps on September 1st, 1851. Three denominations of the 1st issue were printed in diamond shape. It was a habit, as in New Brunswick in that period, to cut stamps in 2 to use every part at half its nominal value. On July 1st, 1867, Nova Scotia joined the Dominion of Canada.
