Canada #756ai (SG#MS917) var 1978 $1.69 Capex 78 Issue Souvenir Sheet on LF/HF Paper F-70 NH
A fine NH example of the $1.69 multicolured 1978 Capex 78 souveir sheet. Printed on surfaced Abitibi Price paper (APP) giving a low fluorescent reaction under ultraviolet light, on the face, and a high fluorescent reaction on the back, with no fluorescent fibres. This is a much scarcer paper than the LF paper listed in Unitrade, and we do not recall ever seeing it before. Smooth creamy white PVA gum with a satin sheen. 2017 Unitrade values a F-65 NH sheet on the normal LF paper at $7.50. This variety should be worth $25-$30. The sheet offered here grades 70.
Note: the above scan is a stock photo as are all my scans for material after 1952. The item(s) you will receive has (have) been carefully checked to adhere to the above grading standards, so while it (they) may not be exactly the same, it (they) will be of the same quality. Also, I do not provide back scans of NH stamps or blocks after 1952 unless they are required to illustrate some attribute of the paper or gum.
