Canada #BK345 2004-2010 Floral and Flag Issue, A VFNH $9.30 Booklet Containing $1.55 The Little Larkspur, Lowe Martin Printing on NF TRC Paper, HB Cover With Slight Downward Shift of Blue Colour
A VFNH complete $9.30 booklet from the 2004-2010 Floral and Flag issue containing the $1.55 The Little Larkspur stamps. Printed on NF TRC paper with a HB back cover. This is the original printing with the dull, washed out tagging. There is also a very slight downward shift in the blue colour, which is apparent at the edges of the flower.
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 $19.50 for a normal booklet. With the shift, it should be worth $30 or so. 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
