Canada #BK142b (McCann #BK142c) 1991-1998 Fruit & Flag Issue, a VFNH $2.40 Booklet Containing 48c McIntosh Apple, Hibrite Uncoated Open Cover, Canada '92 Ad Inside, Tab Inscriptions
A VFNH complete $2.40 booklet from the 1991-1998 Fruit & Flag Issue, containing the 48c McIntosh Apple stamp. The booklet has a hibrite uncoated open cover. The inside of the cover contains an ad for Canada '92. The pane tabs are inscribed with the Coated Papers designation and Ashton Potter Limited.
Unitrade does not list differences in the fluorescence of the booklet covers, nor the fluorescence of the panes inside, but there are definite variations and in my opinion, they are every bit as collectible as other aspects to the booklets. So far, for this issue the covers all seem to be hibrite and the panes are generally either dead/NF or DF/DF, depending on whether they are printed on Coated Papers Paper or Harrison Paper.
Unitrade lists this booklet, at $11.00 for VFNH. The booklet offered here grades 84 as follows:
