54
Canada #1534ii. VF mint NH example of the unissued 1992 Xmas 52c rate stamp. This stamp was produced for a proposed 50c to 52c rate change that was postponed until a later date. A few of these 52c stamps somehow got out of the post office and into private hands. A very rare modern variety. 2019 Unitrade. $200.00 $55

  History
55
Canada #1535ii. The rare and unissued 90c value 1994 Xmas proposed and rejected rate change, VF MNH. Fewer than 1,000 examples of the 90c stamp exist. The Post Office intended to increase the postal rates from 88c but changed their minds at the last minute. Somehow a few of these stamps made it onto the market. Oops! A famous modern "administrative" error. Issued 88c value included for comparison. 2019 Unitrade. $600.00 $160

  History
56
Canada #1679. PRINTING SHIFT. VF mint NH block of four of the 1999 issue 10c "Woodworking" from the "Traditional Trades" definitive series with a very dramatic PRINTING SHIFT showing the black background shifted right so "10 CANADA" looks DOUBLED.

57
Canada #1683a. Top quality VF mint NH imperforate pair of the 2000 issue 47c Queen Elizabeth definitive. From a unique sheet found near Elliot Lake Ontario in May 2001 (therefore only 50 pairs). A modern Elizabethan rarity of the highest order. 2019 Unitrade. $900.00 $260

58
Canada #1693ii. VF MNH pane of 4 of the $5.00 Moose "Extra Moose" variety consisting of a strong offset of the brown Moose, showing a clear impression facing left on the gummed side instead of facing right as on the front.

Canada #1764b. Handpicked upper left corner VF+ MNH inscription block of four of the 1998 issue 45c Xmas Angel in the very rare perf 13.1 x 13.6. Fewer than 500 mint examples of #1764b are known and only a tiny handful of inscription blocks are in existence. Unquestionably one of the rarest modern issue plate blocks. Includes a block of the regular #1764 (perf 13.1 x 13.1) for comparison. 2019 Unitrade. $2,500.00 $800

Canada #1767/2194, 2465b, 2467b. Mint NH collection of 1999 to 2006 period issues (plus a couple from 2010), all archivally stored on hingeless pages in the original Lighthouse album, plus the 1999 issue hard cover Millennium collection book. A comprehensive offering of stamps, souvenir sheets and booklets, all conservatively valued as face value postage only but worth a decent premium as a collection. Total face value $453.83 $290

62
Canada #1812, 1812i, 1813, 1813i, 1814, 1814i, 1818-1834, UX125. VF MNH complete run of all the 1999-2000 Millennium miniature sheets including the basic set of 17 panes plus the additional six "Dove" thematic panes of 4 and 1 as well as the postal stationery post card.

63
Canada #1969a. VF mint NH example of the 2003 issue 48c Year of the Ram Lunar New Year stamp with the Unitrade listed MISSING GOLD on Ram's Shoulder error.

4791
  History
64
Canada #1991C-1991D. Two complete 2003 issue Canada-Alaska Cruise Ship Sheets. Both Post Office fresh and VF MNH. These very limited edition promotional "Picture Postage®" stamps were only issued for use on the 2003 season Alaska route cruise ships and are much scarcer than the Unitrade catalogue value would suggest. The 10 undenominated se-tenant stamps in each sheet were (and still are) valid for use as first-class international letter mail. The official printing figures total 50,000 but many were probably still unsold at the end of the cruising season and destroyed. We rarely find these sheets in collections we handle. 2017 Unitrade. $200.00 $85

  History
65
Canada #2012. FORGERY. The 2003 issue 49c Queen Elizabeth II POSTAL COUNTERFEIT in a horizontal pair from the original forged booklet pane of 10. An excellent counterfeit that would (and did) certainly fool most postal authorities and collectors. Reportedly created in the Baltic states of Eastern Europe by former intelligence service agents. Estimate $100.00 $22

  History
66
Canada #2156. VF mint NH investment lot of 25 examples of a scarce and "overlooked" 2006 Canada/USA co-issue souvenir sheet, commemorating Champlain Surveying the East Coast. The sheet contains 2 x 39c US stamps and 2 x 51c Canadian stamps. This sheet can be distinguished from the US Post Office edition by the bar code in the lower left corner (the US version has no bar code). 2019 Unitrade. $250.00 $70

  History
67
Canada #2201a. VF MNH left-hand sheet margin example of the 52c Year of the Pig Lunar New Year issue with the "Missing Gold" error. Normal stamp included for comparison. I remember selling these for $400.00 when they were first discovered. 2019 Unitrade. $100.00 $60

Five complete VF MNH complete sets (still sealed in the original souvenir packs) of the limited edition gold, silver and bronze "Vancouver 2010" overprints in the selvedge of three different Olympic souvenir sheets. A real sleeper set, probably the scarcest of all the Canada 2010 Olympic philatelic issues. Sure to increase in value due to the international appeal of Olympic topicals. 2017 Unitrade. $325.00 $95

  History
69
Canada #2844. Recalled Souvenir Sheet. Recalled 2015 UNESCO World Heritage Sites Souvenir Sheet. VF mint condition example of the rare recalled $8.40 souvenir sheet of five, including one misidentified "Hoodoo" stamp. The entire printing was withdrawn from post offices in a panic by Canada Post. The Unitrade catalogue value is irrelevant with regards to the actual market value of the sheet as the recalled souvenir sheet is proving to be much scarcer than the recalled booklet. Estimate $150.00 $130
5233
  History
70
Canada #B10-T1. UNTAGGED ERROR. Unitrade listed VF mint NH example of the 8c + 2c 1976 Olympic Games Basketball semi-postal, completely UNTAGGED. Much harder to find than the catalogue value would suggest. 2019 Unitrade. $80.00 $36

The booklet contains one pane of four of each of the 1c yellow (#105a), the 2c yellow green (#107b) and the 3c brown (#108a). The panes are all sound, fresh and mint NH. The minor cover faults do not affect the contents in any way. A very rare French text booklet. 2019 Unitrade. $1,300.00 $210

Canada #BK82, BK82A, BK84, BK98. VF quality collection of 336 complete booklets of the 1982-1985 definitive issues, all neatly housed and identified in soft plastic pages, meticulously identified by the previous owner with regards to paper fluorescences and minor tagging varieties. All valued by Unitrade catalogue but some material goes beyond the scope of even this catalogue. 2019 Unitrade. $627.00 $210

75
Canada #BK111A. VF quality investment group of 10 intact examples of the scarce March 1990 issue 50c Flag booklet, all perf 12.5 x 13 (perf change). 2018 Unitrade. $550.00 $42

  History
76
Canada #BK251Aa. Worthwhile investment booklet lot trio consisting of three VF mint condition complete unsevered booklets of thirty of the 48c Flag with the unannounced and provisional "Vancouver 2010" overprint which commemorated the awarding of the 2010 Winter Olympics to Vancouver BC (catalogue #1991). There was a very limited issue of this overprint (the overprinted stamp was not included in the Annual Collection or quarterly pack). The unsevered booklet of thirty is the only way to get the complete Post Office cover design, as the photograph runs across all three booklets of ten. Total face value as postage is $43.20. A "sleeper" booklet type and scarce Olympic topical. 2017 Unitrade. $180.00 $80

77
Canada #BK623 (x 2). Hoodoos Booklets. Two 2015 issue UNESCO World Heritage Sites Booklets. Both in VF mint condition. These examples of the rare recalled $7.20 self-adhesive booklet of six x $1.20 stamps each include two of the misidentified "Hoodoos" stamps. Withdrawn from post offices in a panic by Canada Post, not many reached private hands. This booklet duo will be perfect for exhibition and display, as the wrong "Hoodoo" is also illustrated on the booklet cover. Estimate $150.00 $60

78
Canada #BK649 (x 10). Investment lot of ten archival quality (still in the original sealed Canada Post packaging) complete 2016 issue 50th Anniversary of STAR TREK Prestige booklets, each booklet containing five different commemorative panes (#2912f, 2912g, 2912h, 2912i and 2916a). A very popular issue with all the regular supplies exhausted by fanatical Trekkies a long time ago (but not in a galaxy far, far away - that's Star Wars). These booklets regularly sell for well over the original issue price of $19.95 each and often sell for the full catalogue value of $40.00 each. 2019 Unitrade. $400.00 $230

  History
79
Canada #BK686. Recalled Hanukkah Booklets. Two VF mint intact examples of the extremely scarce recalled 2017 Hanukkah self-adhesive "P" booklets of 10. These booklets were recalled by Canada Post within hours of issuance, with severe consequences threatened for any post office or outlet disobeying the order. These booklets are proving to be the scarcest recalls in recent Canadian philatelic history. The problem was the use of the Star of David as a motif, on both the front cover and on the "colour key" in the lower right corner of the pane. These regularly sell for over full catalogue value. Estimate $150.00 $80

Canada #OX4. Attractively centered and F/VF mint NH example of the 1913 issue brown black officially sealed stamp. Very hard to find Never Hinged.

Canada - Annual Collection/Souvenir Book Duo. Two scarce but only Fine condition Canada Post books, the first one being the rare "Some Canadian Postage Stamps" dark green hardcover book with embossed gilt text on cover containing MNH blocks of various 1961-1964 period issues. Note that this book is the 1965 revised edition. I don't know why this scarce tome isn't listed in Unitrade. 2005 Darnell lists this book at $50.00 (an unreasonably low price considering how seldom you see these books). Some soiling noted along page edges from handling. The second book is a scarce 1976 Canada Post Annual Collection, containing VF mint NH stamps but with some cover wear. Unitrade catalogue is $85.00 for the yearbook. Estimate $100.00 $85
