Canada #BK251Ai 1999-2003 Trades & Wildlife Issue, a VFNH $4.80 Booklet Containing 48c Flag and Canada Post Head Office, NF TRC paper, HB/HB Cover, Left Portion of Rouletted Booklet, Rounded Die Cuts, Vancouver 2010 Overprint
A VFNH complete $4.80 booklet from the 1999-2003 Trades and Wildlife issue containing the 48c Canadian flag and Canada Post Head office stamp, being the left 1/3rd of the larger booklet of 30. The stamps are printed on TRC paper that is NF and the cover is HB/HB. The stamps and the booklet both bear a 2-line red "Vancouver 2010" overprint to publicize the olympic games.
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.
Unitrade lists this booklet, at $60 for the complete VFNH, booklet of 30, so the 1/3 portion should be worth $20. The booklet offered here grades 75 as follows:
Cover freshness: 10/10
Centering of the pane: 45/70
Condition of cover edges: 5/5
Freshness of the pane: 5/5
Absence of visible cover flaws or stains: 5/5
