Canada -Varieties of the 1970 Christmas Stamps

Unitrade again lists some nice varieties for the 1970 Christmas Series that I have found in my own collection.

The first I have is Scott #522.

The Variety, listed as Unitrade #522iii is a “dot” between M and A in the word Christmas. ¬† Unitrade values this at $20.

One comment:

  1. The reason this is worth $20.00 CDN ($15.00us) is because this error (522iii) is in position #56 on a sheet of 100 stamps. That is this error sat on ROW 6 POSITION 6.

    Was it just dust? Not too sure. But I do have 5 in my possession and I’m happy with that.

    Thanks for sharing your pictures.
