A specialized group of 15 VF used examples of the $1 Yorkton Courthouse and $2 Truro Normal School stamps from the 1991-1998 Fruit and Flag Issue, displaying a range of printings, some of which are listed and some are not. 

On both values the Leigh Mardon printings generally show the colour of the facade ink under UV light as "orangy brown", "red brown", or "copper".  The paper varies also, having either a non-fluorescent front and DF back (NF/DF) or a non-fluorescent face and non-fluorescent back (NF/NF).
