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.
