Canada #2308 98c Multicoloured "Miga", 2009 Vancouver Olympics Issue, Coil Stamp, Two VF Used Examples, One Missing the Yellow Colour
Two VF used 98c multicoloured "Miga" coil stamps from the 2009 Vancouver Olympics Issue, one of which is missing the yellow colour. Printed on paper, which although noted as TRC in Unitrade, has all the characteristics of Fasson paper. This paper is NF.
The stamp on the left appears at first to be printed in the wrong colours. But when you look closer at the normal stamp on the right, you can see traces of the blue and pink colours. It becomes clear that what is missing is the yellow, which when combined with the light blue produces bright green and when combined with the pink produces orange.
Unitrade does not list this error, but it should be worth at least $25 and probably more, but without a certificate $25-$50 is about right. The stamps offered here grade 75 and 80 as follows:
Paper freshness: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
Cancellation: 5/10 and 10/10
