Canada #BK317Aa 2004-2010 Floral and Flag Issue, A VFNH $5.10 Booklet Containing 51c Canadian Flag Over Scenes, Lowe Martin Printing on NF TRC Paper, HB Cover, Strong Tagging, 29 Slit Roulette, "Sun Ray Flaw"
A VFNH complete $5.10 booklet from the 2004-2010 Floral and Flag issue containing the 51c Canadian flag over Canadian scenes stamps, showing an unlisted type of the "Sun Ray" flaw. Printed on NF TRC paper with a HB back cover. This booklet has the strong bright yellow tagging. This is the printing with 29 slit roulette.
The sun ray flaw on the Yukon dogsled stamp is not one of the 6 types discussed in Unitrade. Those all occur at the top of the design. The type included in this booklet has the flaw on the bottom right of the design.
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 in this grade at $75 for one of the other listed sun ray flaws. The booklet offered here grades 80 as follows:
Cover freshness: 10/10
Centering of the pane: 50/70
Condition of cover edges: 5/5
Freshness of the pane: 5/5
Absence of visible cover flaws or stains: 5/5
Condition of interleaving and contents: 5/5
