77 Canada #1965, 1965a ODJIG SIGNED GOLDMINE. Extremely scarce group of Daphne Odjig artist signed stamp booklets, First Day Covers and stamp pane, all of the 48c "Genesis" stamp from the 2002 Christmas issue set of three. Items relating to this particular issue are very rare signed by Odjig due to her fragile health at the time ("Genesis" was a 1976 work). The lot of signed items consists of ten intact booklets of 10, two FDCs with inscription blocks, a full sheet of 25 signed in the lower margin, a signed card with the image and a Canada Post announcement pertaining to the stamp issue celebration in Kamloops, November 18th 2002. Daphne Odjig (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daphne_Odjig) was a world-renowned, award winning aboriginal artist, born in the Wikwemikong First Nation on Manitoulin Island, ON in 1919. She passed away in Kelowna BC in October of 2016. Here's your chance to acquire an investment quality "artist signed" group, these particular pieces signed as a special favour for a family member. Possibly a unique offering. Estimate $400.00 $375

78 Canada #1991C-1991D Two complete 2003 issue Canada-Alaska Cruise Ship Sheets. Both sheets are 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 $120
5360
79 Canada #2299f, 2305f, 2366c 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 $80
5400
80 Canada #2357iii, 2426iii Scarce VF quality mint uncut press panels of 100 of two different self-adhesive "P" (permanent) die cut coils, consisting of the 2010 issue "Striped Coralroot" and the 2011 issue "Arctic Hare". These uncut panes were in very limited numbers. This particular sheet format creates horizontal pairs of stamps that are imperforate between. These are very scarce modern varieties, as most collectors were not made aware of this particular format. The present face value of the two sheets is $170.00 (but worth more). The pricing in the 2017 Unitrade is not particularly consistent with the actual scarcity of these limited issue sheets. 2017 Unitrade. $340.00 $210
4425
81 Canada #2844 Souvenir Sheet. Recalled 2015 UNESCO World Heritage Sites Souvenir Sheet. VF mint condition example of the scarce recently recalled $6.00 souvenir sheet of five, including one mis-identified "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 $75
5233

Unitrade-listed but still unpriced VF condition 1943 KGVI War Issue "Chewing Gum" format booklet with Type IIa BILINGUAL covers containing panes of 3 of the 1c green, 3c rose violet and 4c dark carmine values. An asterisk in the catalogue notes that "An example has been reported to the editors" and the McCann specialized booklet catalogue has a question mark rather than a value. This lot represents a rare chance for a possibly unique item in pristine condition. Note that this is the same booklet that was offered in sale #1844 and sold for $220.00. The buyer encountered technical difficulties and has chosen to re-sell the item. Estimate $150.00 $130

87 Canada #BK623 Hoodoos Booklets. Two 2015 issue UNESCO World Heritage Sites Booklets. Both in VF mint condition. These examples of the rare recently recalled $7.20 self-adhesive booklet of six x $1.20 stamps each include two of the mis-identified "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 $200.00 $80
