Canada #1673ii 1c Multicoloured, Bookbinding, 1998-2005 Trades and Wildlife Issue, a VF NH LL Inscription Block Printed on NF/NF Coated Papers Paper, Showing A Significant Shift of the Black Background Colour
A very fine NH lower left inscription block of the 1c multicoloured bookbinding stamp from the 1998-2005 Trades and Wildlife Issue, showing a significant rightward shift of the black background colour. The colour is shifted approximately 1/2 mm to the right, which causes the Canada Inscription to appear doubled. Printed on NF/NF Coated Papers Paper. This is the 2001 CBN reprint that shows the imperforate bottom selvedge.
Unitrade does not list these types of shifts, but $5 per stamp is not unreasonable, so $20 for the block is our estimate. The block offered here grades 75 as follows:
Paper freshness: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
