Canada #BK341 2004-2010 Floral and Flag Issue, A VFNH $5.10 Booklet Containing "P" Flag Over Scenes, CBN Printing on NF TRC Paper, HB Cover, Strong Tagging, Print Shift Showing Doubling of Flags
A VFNH complete $5.10 booklet from the 2004-2010 Floral and Flag issue containing the "P" flag over Canadian scenes stamps. Printed on NF TRC paper with a HB back cover. This booklet has the strong tagging, as shown in the comparison picture taken under UV. There is also a slight shift of one red colour contained in the flag, causing some minor doubling of the flags, which is most notable in the stem of the maple leaves.
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 $17 for a normal booklet. With these shifts, the booklet should be worth $50 or so. 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
Condition of interleaving and contents: 5/5
