Canada #BK420 (2363) $1.22 Rose Pegonia, 2004-2012 Floral & Canadian Pride Issue, A Complete Booklet With Printing Shift of Magenta and Yellow
A very well centered and very fine example of the $7.32 booklet from the 2004-2012 Floral and National Pride Issue, printed on TRC paper, showing strong tagging and a printing shift in which the yellow and pink colours are shifted slightly downward in relation to the other colours. This results in the "Canada" inscription appearing slightly doubled, with the doubling being from the misplaced magenta & yellow lettering. A similar example was offered last week, but in that case the colour was shifted upwards, rather than downwards.
The Unitrade catalogue value for a VF-75 mint example of the normal booklet is $15. Our estimate of the value with the printing shift is $30 - less than the booklet offered last week, largely due to the fact that the shift is less prominent. The booklet offered here grades VF-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: 10/10
