Canada #1356as/1362as 42c-45c Canadian Flag & Queen Elizabeth II, 1991-1998 Fruit and Flag Issue, VFNH Pairs From the Small and Large Booklets

Sold out

Six very fine NH stamp-label pairs, booklet pairs and a booklet strip of the 42c-45c Canadian flag booklet and Queen Elizabeth II stamps from the 1991-1998 Fruit and Flag Issue, printed on NF/DF Coated Papers paper.  The pairs of the 43c are the CBN printing and the strip is the perf. 14.5 x 14.6 Leigh Mardon Printing. 

Unitrade states that the CBN and AP perf. 13.6 x 13.1 singles cannot be differentiated. However that is not really true. You can tell them apart by the background colour, which is lighter on the AP printings as compared to the CBN ones. 

Unitrade lists these as singles at $15.25 for VFNH. The pairs and strips offered here grade 75, 80 and 84 as follows:
