74 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
5472
75 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 $75
3398
76 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. The "Striped Coralroot" sheet has a light corner bend noted for the record. 2017 Unitrade. $340.00 $160
4841
77 Canada #2642ii, 2642 VF mint NH 2013 issue "Chinatown Gates" IMPERFORATE souvenir sheet of 8.

Withdrawn from post offices in a panic by Canada Post, not many reached private hands.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 $110
