A specialized group of 5 VF used examples of the $5 Victoria Public Library stamp from the 1991-1998 Fruit and Flag Issue, displaying a range of printings, some of which are listed and some are not. 

In addition to the two type differences, there are also differences in the shade of black on the windows of the library, and the background colour differs markedly between the 1998 reprint and the earlier printings. The papers vary from NF/DF to NF/NF. So the printings are as follows:

  • $5 type 1 on NF/DF with two different shades of windows.
  • $5 type 1 on NF/NF with two different shades of windows.
  • $5 type 2 on NF/NF with black windows. 

    Unitrade lists these stamps at $17. for fine used. The stamps offered here generally grade between 75 and 84.
