Canada #UX427. UNESCO Hoodoo Postcard Stamp Error. Ultra rare recalled 2015 UNESCO Dinosaur Park Canada postal stationery picture post card, depicting the wrong Hoodoos image. This dramatic and popular error stamp was released in the form of booklets, souvenir sheets, First Day Covers and prepaid international rate postcards. This postcard is the by far the rarest form of the error, as very few postal outlets carry this type of product and only a handful escaped the recall at the Canada Post National Philatelic Centre. The official recall was made less than 48 hours after the stamp release. It is estimated that as few as 25 examples of these post card errors made it into the hands of a few very lucky collectors (who had standing orders for pre-paid postcards) before the Post Office doors slammed shut. Estimate $1,000.00 $260
