Lot 70 Canada #1969-1971, 1973-1974, 1979-1985 January - March 2003 Canada Post Quarterly Pack Containing the Year of the Ram - Hellenic Associaton, Colour Logo in Bottom Right on Back
A Canada Post Quarterly Pack from January - March 2003, which contains all the stamps from the Year of the Ram issue, plus the souvenir sheet, to the Helenic Assocation issue. The packs are of a new design introduced in 2003 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, is the Canada Post Logo in colour, which forms a box that contains the UPC barcode ending in 2624 9 on the left. 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, the earlier packs had the Canada Post logo in black and white, and also had a recycling symbol on the back. 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 pane inside is $33.00. The stamps, souvenir sheet, blocks and pane offered here in these packs are all VF and grade between 75 and 84.
