Canada #2082 $1.45 Purple Dutch Iris, 2004 Floral Definitives, a VFNH Booklet Single on Fasson Paper, Showing Double Print, Shiny Lacquer Tagging

Sold out

A very fine NH booklet single of the $1.45 Purple Dutch Iris stamp from the 2004 floral definitives issue, showing an apparent double print, as a result of a colour shift involving the underprinting of the letters and numerals. Printed on Fasson paper, with the shiny lacquer tagging. An unusual and striking variety.
