Lot 67 Canada #1927-1941, 1945 January - March 2002 Canada Post Quarterly Pack Containing the First Class Definitives - Art Canada Issues, Black and White "From Anywhere to Anyone" Logo in Bottom Centre, Bar Code and Recycling Symbol on Back
A Canada Post Quarterly Pack from January - March 2002, which contains all the stamps from the two first class definitives and three medium value coils to the Art Canada issue. The packs are of a new design introduced in the late 1990's which lists the contents of the pack and total face value on the back, and then at the bottom of the envelope, which is on a matte finish paper, are the Canada Post Logo in black and white at the bottom centre, with the slogan "From Anywhere to Anyone" added below the logo, a UPC barcode ending in 2154 1 at the bottom left, and the recycling symbol at bottom right. These details are potentially important because the design of these packs has changed over time, and it is possible that the same pack may exist with different markings on the envelope, as has often been found with other Canada Post products in the past. For example, on this pack the order of the barcode and Canada Post logo are different from the pack offered in lot 61, and the slogan was not present on the earlier packs. In these packs the Canada Post Logo is in the centre of the envelope, whereas with lot 61 it was on the left. This is to my knowledge an entirely unstudied aspect to modern Canadian philately. These packs are very easily collected and displayed in clear, single pocket Vario pages, which will enable viewing of the front and back designs on the envelope.
Unitrade lists these packs but does not price them. The value of the stamps, souvenir sheets, blocks and booklet pane inside is $27.30. The stamps, souvenir sheet, blocks and booklet pane offered here in these packs are all VF and grade between 75 and 84.
