Canada #2011ii 49c Multicoloured Flag Over Edmonton, 1998-2004 Trades & Wildlife Issue, A VFNH "Printed on the Gum Side" Single
A VFNH example of the 49c multicoloured flag over Edmonton stamp from the 1998-2004 Trades and Wildlife Issue, printed on the gummed side. Printed on hibrite TRC paper. It is not actually printed on the gum, the way a variety like this would be if it were a sheet stamp. Rather, the backing paper is gummed, so that the stamp would have no gum if peeled off. So, what has actually happened is that the booklet from which this stamp came was printed on the wrong side of the paper. The back cover designs should have been printed where the stamp image is and the stamp image should have been on the other side.
Unitrade values this stamp at $10. The stamp offered here grades 80 as follows:
Paper freshness: 10/10
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
