Lot 5 Canada #1779, 1779a 1999 Marco Polo, Two Canada Post First Day Covers, One With a Corner Block and one With Souvenir Sheet
Two official Canada Post first day covers for the 1999 Marco Polo Issue, One bears a souvenir sheet, while the other bears a lower left corner block. Both are on DF envelopes.
Unitrade does not make any mention of the fluorescence level of the envelopes used to produce them. The envelopes are an integral component of the FDC's produced and a study of the covers produced does show that there are often quite dramatic differences in the fluorescent qualities of the envelopes used. So, we mention them here for the sale of being thorough.
The covers are all clean and VF. Unitrade cat, $4.60, based on the price of mint plate blocks, as Unitrade does not list FDC's for plate blocks, though generally unaddressed FDC's are mint items that are still valid for postage, so their catalogue value if they were to be listed would be tied very closely to the price of the mint plate blocks.
Please note that we will charge actual postage costs on all first day cover lots.
