One impression is in the regular silver ink, the other impression is albino. A very noticeable and as of yet uncatalogued variety. Other high value National Parks issues have Unitrade listed double embossing varieties (for example #937iii @ $350.00). Some black offset from the printers noted on the gum side for accuracy's sake. Estimate $150.00 $65
5614
73 Canada #727a VF mint NH example of the 1979 issue $2.00 Kluane with the missing silver inscriptions error. Only 500-600 examples of this error exist. Normal stamp included for comparison. 2017 Unitrade. $400.00 $210

3266
75 Canada #953a MNH imperforate strip of three of the 1987 issue 36c dark red Parliament coil. This is one of the scarcer modern imperfs. Valued as 1.5 x the price of a pair. 2017 Unitrade. $562.50 $130
5614
76 Canada #1407ai Two examples of the famous Canada '92 "Signature Sheet", both VF MNH. Only 10,000 sheets issued. Printed for the CANADA '92 program, these souvenir sheets are printed on a distinctive paper stock and bear the marginal signature "Paul de Chomedy, Sieur de Maisonneuve". Listed in all major catalogues and illustrated in most albums. Needless to say missing from most collections. A nice little investment duo. 2017 Unitrade. $250.00 $85
4582
77 Canada #1442vi VF MNH block of 20 of the 1992 "Canada in Space" issue with the scarce "Meteor Shower" variety on the holograms of 4 stamps in the second column. This shows up as dotted horizontal streaks of black on the lower half of the hologram and is strongest on position 6 in this block, with 2 clear lines of streaks. Valued conservatively as the single varieties only. 2017 Unitrade. $800.00 $240
5614
78 Canada #1534ii VF mint NH upper left position inscription block of four of the unissued 1992 Xmas 52c rate stamp. This stamp was produced for a proposed 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 inscription block. 2017 Unitrade. $950.00 $350
4355
79 Canada #1812i, 1813i, 1814i 20 complete sets of all three 1999-2000 Millennium souvenir sheets of one. All VF MNH. (Face value is $41.08). These panes were only available in the "Millennium Keepsake" tin and are harder to find than the panes of four. 2017 Unitrade. $450.00 $80
5389
80 Canada #1814i Wholesale/investment lot of 100 VF MNH examples of the 1999 issue 95c brown "Dove of peace on branch" Millennium commemorative souvenir sheet of one. This particular sheet was only available in the Official Millennium Keepsake box. Total face value $95.00 but worth more due to relative scarcity. 2017 Unitrade. $750.00 $75
3414
81 Canada #1867b Worthwhile investment lot of 40 VF mint NH examples of the rare "inverted die cutting" variety of the 2000 issue 46c Petro-Canada self-adhesive commemorative. These stamps were only available in the 2000 Annual Collection or in Canada Post philatelic Quarterly Packs. An elusive modern "sleeper" issue, sure to increase in value. 2017 Unitrade. $400.00 $46
4819
82 Canada #1971 VF mint NH wholesale group of twenty of the 2003 issue "NHL All Stars" souvenir sheets, each pane containing 6 x 48c stamps, each stamp depicting a different NHL All Star.

5233
83 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
5614
84 Canada #2642ii, 2642 VF mint NH 2013 issue "Chinatown Gates" IMPERFORATE souvenir sheet of 8. This special and limited edition sheet was only available in the "Chinatown Gates Collection" and was overlooked as a major modern variety by most collectors. Only 8,888 issued. A real "sleeper" item, undervalued in Unitrade. Normal sheet included for comparison. Note that this imperforate variety ALWAYS sells for well over catalogue. 2017 Unitrade. $194.00 $140
4295
85 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). 2017 Unitrade. $500.00 $36
5526
86 Canada #BK623 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 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 $150.00 $80
3613
87 Canada #C1-C9 Fresh and VF mint NH complete set of 1928-1948 airmail issues. A very attractive quality mint run. Unitrade is $405.25 for a VF mint NH set. 2018 Scott US$215.00= $268.75 $90

4464
91 Canada #E4 VF MNH upper sheet margin example of the 1930 issue 20c henna brown "TWENTY CENTS" Special Delivery stamp. This design was deemed to be too unilingual (the text in the value tablet was in English only). The #E5 corrected this problem. Unitrade is $200.00 for VF NH. Great colour, huge Jumbo margins, perfect gum. 2018 Scott US$125.00= $156.25 $80
5614
92 Canada #E8 VF mint NH lower left plate #1 plate block of four of the 1938 issue 20c Special Delivery stamp. Listed as a plate block of 4 in Unitrade. 2017 Unitrade. $481.25 $130

The lot includes the original Canada Post envelope (mailed by Registered mail from Moosomin SK). All in all in very decent shape, considering how few of these books have survived intact. 2017 Unitrade. $250.00 $50
3543
107 Canada Annual Collections for 1975, 1976 and 1977. Choice and VF+ quality trio of early Canada Post soft cover yearbooks containing the MNH stamp issues for these three years. The 1975 issue in particular is very elusive, especially this nice. 2017 Unitrade. $210.00 $80
5604
108 Canada Better Modern Mint Mix. Small box containing a nicely sorted selection of mint NH 1950s to 1990s period issues, with significant duplication of some. Noted the 46c ATM pane, 4 x Eatons booklets (in original wrapping), $1.00 Vancouver issues, plus semi-sorted glassines of duplicated VF mint NH definitives and commemoratives. Conservatively valued as face value postage but many better items make this a "plus value" lot. Total Face value $662.23 $400
5614
109 Canada Misused Mint Mass Mess. Medium sized carton packed with a massive but very tragic hoard of mint material, Queen Victoria through QEII period issues (mostly late GeoVI and QEII). ALL STUCK TOGETHER DUE TO IMPROPER STORAGE IN AN ATTIC FOR DECADES. Noted some very good stamps and plate blocks in the mix with an absolutely obscene total theoretical catalogue value in the many thousands of dollars if they were all NH. Still a worthwhile (major) soaking project, with literally hundreds of dollars of still useable face value present (even excluding the damaged stamps) in the mix. Some of the stacks of stuck plate blocks are over an inch thick! Set aside a few weeks at least for the soaking part and you'll need at least a dozen glue sticks if you want to use the recovered stamps on mail. Estimate $250.00 $170
5624
110 Canada Modern uncancelled on paper. On paper Canada uncancelled postage stamps, consisting of 574 x "P" (presently 85c) mostly "Beaver" and "Flag over" definitive issues. Unchecked for shades and types. Offered as received. Total face value of the uncancelled stamps. $487.90 $160

Contains a VF MNH set of blocks of #311-314, the Canadian Stamp Centenary issue. Very limited issue and a key addition to any Souvenir Book collection. Only listed (and in our opinion severely underpriced) in the 2005 Darnell catalogue. As an added bonus, the lot includes a set of special cacheted covers, each one carried from Richmond Hill ON by different means (locomotive, helicopter, stagecoach and native runner). Valued as the book only. Undervalued 2005 Darnell catalogue. $125.00 $55

177 New Zealand #131d Archivally fresh and VF mint NH block of four of the 1911 issue 1p carmine "Commerce", overprinted "VICTORIA LAND." in black.
