Canada #1078var 34c Multicoloured Vancouver Pavilion, 1986 Expo '86 Issue, A Fine NH UL Field Stock Pair Showing the "Missing Maple Leaf" Variety on Position 1
A fine and fresh NH UL field stock pair of the 34c Vancouver pavilion stamp from the 1986 Expo '86 issue showing the "missing maple leaf" variety on the left stamp, being position 1. The variety occurs in the 6th column of maple leaves from the left side, where the third maple leaf is missing. Printed on dull fluorescent Harrison paper.
Unitrade does not list this variety, but it is fairly major, as far as these varieties go, and it is the first variety I have seen on this stamp. So, I think the value should be somewhere in the $25 range. The pair offered here grades 70 as follows:
Paper freshness: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
